API pH Test Strips
API pH Test Strips is a quick and accurate way to test pH. Tests a wide range pH between 6.0 & 9.0.
In order for your fish to thrive, it is important to maintain the pH in the aquarium at a level similar to their native habitat. pH is the measure of the acidity of water. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral, a pH above 7.0 is alkaline and a pH below 7.0 is acidic. The water in the natural habitat of some species is neutral, while that of other species is either acidic or alkaline. Most freshwater fish will thrive at a pH range of 6.8 - 7.5. The pH of natural ocean water is between 8.2 - 8.4; therefore, saltwater fish and invertebrates should be kept in that range.
