NT Labs Aquarium NH3 Ammonia Test Kit

NT Labs 40 Contains Freshwater NH3 Aquarium Ammonia Test Kit

The NT Labs Ammonia Test Kit provides a simple, easy-to-use testing kit for determining Ammonia (NH3) levels in both ponds and freshwater aquariums. The NT Labs Ammonia Test Kit comes complete with test tubes and liquid reagents to provide accurate results for 40 tests.

How to use it?

  • Ensure the test tube is clean.
  • Take a 5 ml sample of water into the test tube.
  • Add 5 drops of the reagent Ammonia 1, 5 drops of Ammonia 2, and 5 drops of Ammonia 3.
  • Replace the test tube cap and shake thoroughly. Wait 10 minutes, then compare the color of the sample to the color scale provided. Zero ammonia is represented by a yellow color. Any hint of green in the sample indicates the presence of ammonia in the water.

This test kit reports concentration in terms of nitrogen (NH3-N) to be compatible with reported safe concentrations as they apply to fish and plants. If you are interested in knowing the ionic concentration of the measured parameter, multiply your result by 1.21 (NH3-N). For more information on this calculation

What is ammonia?
Ammonia is the main waste product produced by fish as a result of feeding. It can also be generated by the decay of uneaten food or decaying organic matter, such as plant leaves. It is invisible to the naked eye and its presence or absence cannot be determined by looking at the water alone. It is extremely toxic to the fish but is broken down into less toxic nitrite by the beneficial bacteria found in the filter.

Description

What is the correct ammonia level?
There is no occasion where any ammonia is tolerable. A level of zero mg/l (ppm) should be maintained at all times.

What do I do if the ammonia level is wrong?
If a level of 0.2 mg/l (ppm) is found, add a filter booster such as Filter Bugs. If a level above this is found, then a substantial water change is essential. Change 25% of the volume for 0.5 – 1.0 mg/l (ppm) ammonia and 50% for ammonia levels above this. Add Zeolite to the filter compartment to remove ammonia. If any amount of ammonia is found, then it is important to check other vital water quality parameters, in particular pH, KH, and nitrite.
