API GH & KH Test Kit Combo


$ 49.00 until FREE shipping


This is a liquid test kit for KH. KH helps prevent PH from going up or down which helps maintain a healthy ecosystem in your aquarium. 

GH is for measuring how many hardness minerals are in your water. All fish want some minerals but things like Guppies, Mollies, Platies, Swordtails, Goldfish, African Cichlids and more like lots of minerals which is easiest to test for by using a GH test kit.

Directions:

For Testing KH

1. Rinse a clean test tube with water to be tested.

2. Fill the test tube with 5 ml of water to be tested (to the line on the tube).

3. Holding the bottle vertically, add KH Test Solution, one drop at a time. Be sure to count the number of drops being added.

4. Cap the test tube and invert several times after each drop.

5. The test is completed when the water in the test tube, after having been shaken, turns from blue to yellow. If you have difficulty discerning the color after the first drop of test solution is added, remove the cap from the test tube and, while holding it over a white background, look down through the tube.

6. The KH value is determined by the number of drops of test solution that must be added to turn the water in the test tube bright yellow.

GH & KH

I did my test and I'm still confused. I have a 29 gallon Aquarium with Platies, Guppies, Mollies, 2 ghost shrimp, 2 Corey cats and 1 Pleco. I have hard City water KH 6 drops = 107.4
GH 10 drops = 179
So how do I fix it and what number am I supposed to have with my tank. My other stuff such as Nitrites and ammonia are normal but I'm not sure on my Nitrates yet eating on getting the API Freshwater test kit getting it on Friday. Just need some help????????

A Great Tool to Test Water Hardness

I have many aquariums, ranging from full high tech planted tanks, to reef tanks, brackish tanks and African cichlid tanks. This test kit is a great way for me to measure the hardness of the water in each tank so that I may ensure that they have the best water conditions for the inhabitants.

This is an easy-to-use test kit. Make sure that you READ THE INSTRUCTIONS, and that you DO NOT THROW AWAY THE INSTRUCTIONS. Having the instructions available at all times will ensure that you are using the test kit properly.

Do You Know Your Water Parameters?

My fish tanks are "visually" well maintained i.e. heavily planted, frequent water changes, etc. But certain fish species never seemed to do well in my tanks. So, I got this kit to get a better understanding of the water chemistry in my area...continually trying to learn more about the hobby.
