This book is a collection of reviews of the most popular and common freshwater test kits in the areas of pH, ammonia, water hardness, and nitrite & nitrate. Brands like Acquamarine, Aquarium Pharmaceuticals, Jungle Labs, LaMotte, Mardel Labs, Red Sea, SeaChem, Tetra, and Wardley are included in various reviews. Chapter 1 is a review of seven freshwater pH test kits. This chapter deals with the most important water quality in an aquarium. ALL other water parameters affect and/or are affected by pH. Chapter 2 is a review of seven freshwater ammonia test kits. Ammonia toxicity can destroy an entire aquarium overnight. Chapter 3 is a review of eight freshwater Hardness test kits. Water hardness can have a major impact on pH (KH) and is important for keeping stress levels to a minimum in certain species (GH). Hardness is also very important in a planted aquarium. Chapter 4 is a review of nine freshwater nitrite & nitrate test kits. While nitrite & nitrate are not usually an immediate danger to your aquarium inhabitants, they are an important indicator of the "health" of the Nitrogen Cycle.
