Ideal for regular use and when addressing water problem solving issues, the API Nitrite Test Kit tests for harmful nitrite levels from 0 to 5 ppm, and is ideal for use in freshwater and saltwater aquariums.
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, and 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 in fish, with high levels causing suffocation.
Each pack contains 180 tests.
