I like having additional method to check water quality. Cory's video alerted me to this need.
Honestly I have had fish for a many years and until recently never knew you should test for phosphates. I've been having an algae issue and after watching one of Corey's videos he talked about phosphates... guess what I have a lot of phosphate right from the tap water. So I also purchased the phosphate media in hopes it will help my slight algea issue.
API's liquid test kits are always good. Price here was better than my local fish store. Yay.
I was having trouble with algae growth, even after cutting back on the lights, increased water changes, etc. Got this phosphate test kit because it indicated high phosphate levels could lead to algae growth. Sure enough, my phosphate level was high (2). I added the API phosphate remover filter to my canister filter, and within a week my phosphate level was zero, where it should be. I am seeing a lot less algae, and am so glad I bought this test kit.
Works perfectly as do all things i buy from aquarium coop. thanks for carrying all the essentials!
I bought this test kit to go along with my API freshwater test kit because I recently moved to Kentucky and wanted to know more about my water structure. There are two cards included so this test kit doubles for both fresh and salt water.
