The well-being of aquarium dwellers and the healthy growth of aquatic plants depend, to a large extent, on the pH level being kept as constant as possible. Monitoring the pH level in your aquarium is vital to ensure that the water conditions are just right for healthy plants and fish. If pH levels spike or fall rapidly, fish can become stressed and susceptible to diseases. Fluctuations in the pH level are definitely to be avoided.
The JBL Pro AquaTest pH 3.0-10.0 is the perfect kit to test the pH level in your aquarium between the ranges of 3.0 and 10.0. To use, simply fill the plastic cuvette with sample water, add reagent and read the value of the sample off the colour chart.
Usage: When setting up a new aquarium, daily for one week and afterwards weekly.
