API Nitrite Test Kit
API Nitrite Test Kit reads nitrite levels fast and accurate, it helps to monitors nitrite to help prevent fish loss.
Taking a few minutes each week to maintain and monitor aquarium conditions is the key to a healthy aquarium. Nitrite is produced in the aquarium by fish waste and uneaten fish food. Beneficial bacteria in the biological filter convert ammonia into nitrite. The biological filter then converts nitrite into nitrate (NO3)
Toxic nitrite is produced by nitrifying bacteria in the biological filter as it breaks down ammonia. Low levels of nitrite inhibit respiration and suppress the immune system; high levels cause suffocation. This kit tests for harmful nitrite and measures levels from 0 to 5.0 ppm.
