For the testing of toxic nitrite in freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
Nitrite is extremely toxic; it restricts a fish's blood from carrying oxygen. Keeping Nitrite under control is very important. With the aid of this test kit, you will help ensure your aquatic pets live long, happy, healthy lives.
Nitrite (NO2) is the result of the second step in the Nitrogen cycle where toxic Ammonia (NH3) is broken down by nitrifying bacteria (Nitrosomonas) and converted into Nitrite then further into Nitrate. Even in small concentrations Nitrite is lethal to aquatic animals robbing the fish's blood of oxygen, putting them under stress and leading to disease outbreaks or death.
The water chemistry in an established aquarium (6 months old or more) will be altered with all new additions, whether it be ornaments, new fish or corals. It is therefore essential to monitor Nitrite levels in your aquarium on a regular basis by the use of this test kit.
