High nitrate levels in your aquarium indicate a build-up of fish waste and organic compounds, resulting in poor water quality and an increase in algae growth. Maintaining a low nitrate level improves the health of fish and invertebrates.

Use the API® NITRATE TEST KIT to ensure that the nitrate levels in your tank are safe and healthy for your fish. The NITRATE TEST KIT reads parameters from 0 to 160 ppm and may be used for both fresh and saltwater aquariums.

Contains 90 tests and includes 2 test solutions, easy-to-ready instructions, glass test tube and color chart

  • High nitrate is harmful to fish, but is significantly less toxic than ammonia or nitrite. Effects of high nitrate levels are more gradual if parameters go untreated – fish will eventually lose their appetite and grow sluggish and inactive over time. High nitrate also contributes to rapid algae blooms in aquariums.
  • Use API NITRATE TEST KIT weekly or bi-weekly to ensure your nitrate levels are safe for fish, or whenever you suspect you may have high nitrate levels in your tank.
  • This kit can be used with fresh or saltwater aquariums
