Salifert Calcium Test Kit

The Salifert Calcium Test Kit is a good way to measure the calcium level in your reef tank. It is a simple test that you can do in just a few minutes, and it provides accurate results. It is important to test for calcium levels in your aquarium regularly. This is especially true if you have a reef tank, where the corals and invertebrates require calcium for growth and healing. This product comes with a syringe and reagents that are easy to use. Simply draw a small amount of water from your reef tank and put it into the test vial. When the reagent changes color, you know the calcium level is high enough for your tank. If you have coral and invertebrates in your tank, it is very important to monitor the calcium and magnesium levels. This will help you determine if it is time to change your filter or do other maintenance on your aquarium.

More Information

It is also designed to minimize any interference from other substances like lipids, proteins, and bilirubin. The Calcium Assay Kit is a simple colorimetric assay for measuring the total concentration of calcium in biological samples. It provides fast and accurate results with a sharp color change that is used in research and in scientific laboratories worldwide. This kit includes a phenol sulphone phthalein indicator dye and a phosphate buffer. The indicator dye is stabilized in a pH 7-7.5 buffer solution for several hours and does not fade with time. There are two scales in this kit to measure the alkalinity and carbonate hardness of your aquarium. The low scale is ideal for marine environments and the high scale is perfect for freshwater. The results can be compared to a color chart and you will know whether the alkalinity or carbonate hardness is too high for your tank. This is a fast and sensitive test with a high resolution that can easily be used in both saltwater and freshwater. The results are displayed on a colored chart and can be compared with other charts to get the most accurate readings possible.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
