Phosphate Test
Salifert
  • Helps identify cause of brown algae outbreaks
  • Indicates need for additional purification of tap water
  • Approx. 60 tests per kit
    Description
    The Salifert phosphate test quickly detects 0.015 mg/L of phosphate. This makes phosphate measurement highly reliable and informative allowing timely measures to be taken. Phosphate has several negative effects if present in a too high concentration.

    First of all, undesirable algae growth might result making an aquarium an unpleasant sight. Phosphate also blocks or retards the growth of corals and calcareous algae. One of the scientific studies shows that a phosphate concentration higher than 0.05 mg/L decreases the growth of calcareous algae by 90%! Since phosphate can have major consequences when present in a concentration above 0.05 mg/L a test kit should be able in detecting even lower concentrations.
    Tech Notes
    Washing fish food, which is a rich source for phosphates, in a sieve after thawing reduces the input of phosphate tremendously. Also, avoiding use of phosphate-rich low-grade activated carbon helps keep phosphate levels as low as possible. It is recommended that activated carbon for phosphate prior to use.
