Maintaining a healthy aquarium takes a little time and effort. Make it much easier by using different test kits available in our store and enhance water quality. Water contains bacteria that convert the ammonia to nitrites, then other bacteria convert the nitrites into nitrates. The nitrates are removed from the water by plants, water changes, or they are broken down by other bacteria into nitrogen which is then released into the air as a gas. All three of the compounds can be harmful to living animals, so having the bacteria of the nitrogen cycle well established in an aquarium is important for good water quality and aquatic animal health. Testing your tank consistently will avoid algae buildup from toxins present in your system. Upkeep the quality of water in your aquarium by using different types of kits available here to test the water quality for ammonia, phosphates, calcium, chlorine, and pH levels.
