COLOMBO FRESHWATER AQUATEST NITRITE
NITRITE FRESHWATER TEST KIT
Colombo Aquarium Nitrite Test Kit, Nitrite (NO2) is produced from the breakdown of ammonia in the filter. Nitrite is highly toxic to fish, but is usually removed from the water by the bacteria which live inside the filter.
However, in new ponds and aquariums, or if the filter bacteria are damaged, the nitrite level may become toxic. The only way to know what the nitrite level is by testing the water with a Nitrite pond test kit.
A regular testing, especially in new aquaria and ponds, will prevent damage caused by nitrite poisoning.
An optimal level of nitrite in any tank or pond is simply 0mg/l, when the nitrite level is 0.5 mg/l or higher it means there are not enough bacteria present.
Colombo have produced test kits that are developed especially for freshwater. These tests give the best results!
Colombo, 30 years of experience, that makes the difference.

How It WorksMEP CO2 s a bio CO2 solution that features a longer reaction time with a more constant CO2 production compared to other CO2 solutions. The sugar resides in a gel that forms inside the bottle, the yeast gradually dissolves the gel and the sugar in it from top to bottom. Depending on the temperature the yeast solution above the gel becomes inactive due to the increasing amount of alcohol after 20-60 days. When that happens the yeast solution simply is exchanged with a new one, the gel can remain in the bottle until it is completely spent. Refill sets including gel and yeast are available. For better results in hot Singapore climate, please use "Bake King Instant Yeast" instead of the yeast that is included in the package.
