NT Labs Ammonia Test Kit – Your Key to Maintaining a Healthy Aquatic Environment

Understanding Ammonia: Fish waste, uneaten food, and decaying organic matter contribute to the production of ammonia, the primary waste product in aquariums. While invisible to the naked eye, ammonia poses a significant threat to fish health. Fortunately, beneficial bacteria in the filter break down ammonia into less toxic nitrite, ensuring a safer environment for your aquatic companions.

Correct Ammonia Level: Zero tolerance for ammonia is crucial. Maintain a level of zero mg/l (ppm) at all times to safeguard the well-being of your fish.

What to Do if Ammonia Levels Are Wrong:

  • If the level is 0.2 mg/l (ppm), add a filter booster like Filter Bugs.
  • For levels above 0.2 mg/l (ppm), conduct a substantial water change. Change 25% of the volume for 0.5 – 1.0 mg/l (ppm) ammonia and 50% for higher levels. Introduce Zeolite to the filter compartment to remove ammonia.
  • In case of any ammonia detection, check other critical water quality parameters such as pH, KH, and nitrite.

How to Use:

  1. Ensure the test tube is clean.
  2. Collect a 5 ml water sample into the test tube.
  3. Add 5 drops of Ammonia 1, 5 drops of Ammonia 2, and 5 drops of Ammonia 3.
  4. Replace the test tube cap, shake thoroughly, and wait for 10 minutes.
  5. Compare the color of the sample to the provided color scale. A yellow color indicates zero ammonia, while any hint of green signals the presence of ammonia in the water.

Additional Information:

  • The test kit reports concentration in terms of nitrogen (NH3-N) for compatibility with reported safe concentrations applicable to fish and plants.
  • If interested in the ionic concentration, multiply the result by 1.21 (NH3-N).

Trust NT Labs Ammonia Test Kit to accurately assess ammonia levels, empowering you to maintain a pristine and healthy aquatic environment for your beloved fish. Keep your water quality in check and ensure the well-being of your aquatic companions with NT Labs.
