Aquarium Systems SeaTest 40 Nitrate Test
Food waste, fish droppings, and other nitrogen-containing organic matter are broken down by bacteria during the nitrogen cycle to ammonium, then to toxic nitrites.
These are then transformed by other helpful bacteria into harmless nitrates in low concentration.
In a well-functioning pond or aquarium, the nitrite content should be less than 0.3 mg/l.
During the start-up phase of an aquarium or pond, that is, when the nitrifying bacteria are not yet sufficiently developed, periodic control is essential to avoid poisoning.
Test reagent for about 140 tests.

Instructions for use.
Bacteria break down food scraps, fish scraps, and other nitrogen-containing organic compounds into ammonium and, at a later stage, into toxic nitrite.
This nitrite is later converted by other beneficial bacteria, in low concentrations, into harmless nitrate.
In an aquarium or pond in good working condition, the nitrite value will be below 0.3 mg/l.
Especially in the initial phase of the aquarium or pond, filter bacteria do not develop well. Therefore, regular monitoring is essential to avoid poisoning.
Keep out of the reach of children.
