Alkalinity is essentially a means of quantifying the stability of pH in a
solution, such as aquarium water. It is a measure of the concentration of
various negatively charged ionic compounds (anions) such as carbonates, bicarbonates,
borate and hydroxides in the aquarium water. If left unchecked, the alkalinity
drops below a critical level and pH begins to fluctuate more wildly than is
normally suggested (a daily pH shift of +/-0.2 is normal in marine aquaria),
causing stress to livestock. In a marine aquarium, the alkalinity should be
between 7° and 10° dKH (German carbonate hardness). In a fresh water aquarium
it should never drop below 3°dKH.
Elos AquaTestKH makes it possible to quickly determine the buffering
capacity of your aquarium water. It is an high quality product that offers high
accuracy thanks to several procedures including: calibrated lab droppers with
consistent and predefined drops size, NIST (National Institute of Standard and
Technology) certified samples to validate reagents and strict stock management
to supply to our customers ONLY the fresh test production batch available.
Grading: each drop equals 0,5 dKH
