API Nitrite Test Kit for Freshwater and Saltwater


Add to Cart:

API Nitrite Test Kit for freshwater or saltwater measures nitrite levels up to 5 PPM to prevent fish loss. Nitrite is a byproduct of ammonia production from waste and uneaten fish food. Nitrites are then converted into nitrates by the biological filter. When an aquarium is unstable or uncycled these deathly forms of waste are quite difficult to survive in long term; and important to monitor.

Low levels of nitrite inhibit respiration and suppress the immune system; high levels can lead to fish death through suffocation as the gills are unable to function and pass oxygen into the body.

Kit contains enough reagent for 180 individual tests.
