Fish continually release ammonia directly into the pond or aquarium through their gills, urine and solid waste. Uneaten food and other decaying organic matter also add ammonia to the water.
A natural mechanism exists that controls ammonia in the water - the biological filter. However as with any natural process, imbalances can occur. So testing for the presence of toxic ammonia levels is necessary for the health of the fish
Fish require a specific pH level to thrive. However pH in an pond or aquarium can fluctuate due to fish waste, addition of tap water and the build-up of natural acids.
Use this kit to measure pH to maintain healthy pond or aquarium pH levels for fish.
