  • Notes

    • When an aquarium has insufficient regions deprived of oxygen (= anaerobic zones), or denitrification proceeds incompletely then nitrate will build-up.
    • A high nitrate concentration can result in unwanted algae growth, which can irritate corals and retard their growth.
    • The nitrate concentration in a proper functioning reef aquarium should preferably be lower than 1 mg/L. Fish-only aquariums would usually show much higher nitrate concentrations.
    • Many nitrate test kits are prone to amine interference. This can give results much lower than actual.
    • The Salifert nitrate test does not suffer from such an amine interference. The very special ingredients allow for a fast and precise measurement.
    • The range spans from very low to a very high nitrate concentration (approx. 0.05 � 20 mg/L as Nitrate-Nitrogen or 0.2 � 100 mg/L as nitrate ion).
    • The kit can perform approx. 60 measurements.
