Test Kits

Good water quality is essential for healthy fish and plants and the only way to test for the different water parameters is to use a test kit.  Fish tank water should be tested regularly, if only to ease your mind that things are as they should be, and to avoid problems before they occur.  If left unchecked poisons like ammonia or nitrite can quickly rise and kill fish over a very short period of time.

There are several different types of test kits available.  Quick test strips are brilliant if you want a fast and easy answer - just dip them in the water to give a quick indication of several different water parameters all at the same time.

The liquid tests are far more accurate and will indicate the extent of the problem, and if you buy a complete laboratory set you will still be able to test for several different parameters at once.

You certainly do not have to be a scientist to analyse your results, most products comes with full instructions and easy to read colour charts.

We stock a range of test kits, both full kits, quick test strips and individual test kits from Tetra, Seachem, Colombo and API.
