Ammonia and ammonium can be a real problem to not only a new fish keeper but also to an experienced aquarist. Even a low amount can cause severe fish health problems and even death.
It can be a sign that a filtration system is not fully matured. Or that it is not sufficient for the amount of fish in the tank. Ammonia is a by-product of fish waste and uneaten food. So poor tank maintenance can contribute to the problem.
The tests work in just a few minutes, giving a precise and reliable result. The kit will perform 50 tests.
Making sure that uneaten food is removed after a few minutes and that the filter media is cleaned or replaced regularly will help lessen the risk.
Why is testing Ammonia important?
Regular testing is important to keep an eye on all parameters in the aquarium. As well as regular tank maintenance such as removing uneaten foods after a few minutes. Keeping filters properly cleaned and performing regular water changes.

- The continued health of aquatic life.
