Test your aquarium’s alkalinity levels using this Salifert Profi-Test Kit – KH + Alkalinity, as well as your water’s general hardness, ensuring that conditions are right in your tank for coral and fish health and happiness.
Salifert Profi-Test Kits – KH + Alkalinity (Carbonate Hardness) is an ideal addition to any aquarist’s store cupboard.
The Carbonate Hardness or KH level of the water in a reef aquarium is a vital component for healthy and strong coral growth. The KH level denotes how alkali or acidic the water is, which can affect fish and coral health if it isn’t at the right level.
The ideal range for a reef aquarium is between 8.1 and 8.4, so regular testing means that you can monitor this sensitive level. Salifert’s precise tests are sensitive enough to detect even the smallest change.
With enough solution to perform between 100-200 tests, this kit is not only reliable but long-lasting too.
High phosphate levels act as fertiliser for algae in your aquarium, so monitoring them to ensure their levels stay low is important if you want to avoid a nasty bloom of algae in the near future, which you can do easily with a Salfiert Profi Test kit for phosphates.
Use this Profi-Test Kits – Strontium to test your strontium levels in your aquarium, which may be depleted by the corals living inside your tan, and may need to be topped up to achieve a healthy water chemistry for your fish and corals.

All Pro Test Kits come in a durable plastic housing and use optically clear, analytical lab grade glass test vials.
Used for testing of Nitrate in the aquarium.
Can also be used as part of Stage 2 – Algae Nutrient Control in the Red Sea Reef Care Program. The Algae Nutrient Control Stage provides a complete solution for testing and controlling nuisance algae and promote coral colouration. Also, test for Phosphate with the Red Sea Phosphate Pro Test Kit. To control these NO3 and PO4 levels use the N: P-X treatment.
This product is part of the new Red Sea unique Reef Care Program, look out for other products from this range by choosing Red Sea. The Red Sea reef care program is the result of over 5 years of research from Red Sea scientists resulting in an unparalleled understanding of the requirements of coral aquariums. The Red Sea Reef Care Program provides a holistic solution to maintaining a flourishing coral reef aquarium. It even allows beginners to achieve stunning SPS aquariums.
Nitrite is a substance that is toxic to fish and invertebrates.
It is a misconception that once a tank is through its cycle (first 3 or 4 weeks) that nitrite has vanished.
Many nitrite test kits suffer from interference by amines (such as naturally occurring and essential amino acids) resulting in a too low measured value especially if the nitrite concentration is relatively low.
Nitrite is converted to nitrate in properly cycled aquariums. The thus formed nitrate is transformed into harmless nitrogen gas (=denitrification). This happens in areas deprived of oxygen within the live rock and miscellaneous filter materials.
Before it can be transformed to nitrogen gas the nitrate is first converted back to nitrite. When for whatever reason this particular cycle can not be completed, toxic nitrite can be present in significant concentration and readily be detected by test kits that do not suffer from amine interference.
Many nitrite test kits have the potency to suffer from amine interference resulting in toxic nitrite not being detected.
Salifert’s Nitrite test kit does not suffer from such an amine interference because very special ingredients are used.
These same ingredients also result in a full-colour development within minutes. The developed colour is very intense making detection of even minute traces of nitrite easy. It probably is the most sensitive, accurate and fastest nitrite test kit available.
The pH value in a marine tank has a major impact on the growth of corals and calcareous algae and on many biological processes. The pH should not be allowed to fluctuate more than approx. 0.2 units during any 24 hour period and should preferably be kept above 8.2. • If the pH is too low then the cause may be too low alkalinity and/or a build-up of carbon dioxide caused by insufficient aeration • A low pH can be corrected by improving aeration and by increasing the alkalinity using the Salifert KH + pH Buffer 250ml. • The Salifert Test Kit is sufficiently accurate to monitor minor pH fluctuations and is scaled from pH 7.4 – 8.7. • Sufficient for 50 tests – For marine water only!
