To maintain a healthy aquarium with conditions close to nature, regular checks and adaptations of the water values are important. Quick test kits serve as an orientation test.
Why might I buy quick test kits?
These precise and easy to use test strips give you accurate readings for the 5 most important chemical factors in fresh and saltwater tanks, including pH, Nitrite, Nitrate, KH and GH levels, allowing you to ensure elements of your water chemistry are correct.
What are the main types of quick test kits?
Found mostly in the form of test strips, our quick test kits allow you to check the levels of core elements such as PH and nitrate levels. It is simply a case of submerging the strip in your aquarium water and then comparing it to the colour test card as instructed.
What features to look out for?
Quick test kits can be used in both fresh and saltwater aquariums to quickly let you know whether you need to treat the water. Many of the kits we carry contain a good amount of test strips and can be dipped directly into the aquarium testing all five elements with one strip, so there's no need for separate vials or tubes.
