Healthy aquariums with conditions close to nature The right water values are dependent on the fish stock and the plants in the aquarium. Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated. With bad values diseases or algae can appear in the aquarium. To maintain a healthy aquarium with conditions close to nature it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly. With the JBL Test Combi Set you can determine the 5 most important water values in your aquarium.
Precise measurement of the following values:
pH test: acidity of the water from 3.0 to 10
KH test: pH stability of the water (carbonate hardness)
Fe test: iron value to control the fertilisation
NO2 test: toxic nitrogen compound
NO3 test: reason for algae growth
To determine the CO2 content you just need to measure the pH and KH values. From both values arises the CO2 content in the water, which then can be referenced from the enclosed table.
You can analyse your measured water values in the JBL Online Laboratory free of charge and receive recommendations.
