Product Information

Ammonia is invisible to the naked eye and its presence or absence cannot be determined by looking at the water alone. It is extremely toxic to the fish but is broken down into less toxic nitrite by the beneficial bacteria found in the filter. Ammonia is excreted by the fish as waste product. A high level of Ammonia is an indicator of poor biological filtration, and in time this will cause major health problems, so it is important to test regularly.

There is no occasion where any ammonia is tolerable. A level of zero mg/l (ppm) should be maintained at all times.

NT Labs have redesigned their popular range of test kits and have condensed the ranges into one to make shopping for their test kits even easier!

Testing Pond Water:
If a level of 0.2 mg/l (ppm) is found, add a filter booster such as Filter Bugs. If a level above this is found, then a substantial water change is essential. Change 25% of the volume for 0.5 - 1.0 mg/l (ppm) ammonia and 50% for ammonia levels above this. Add Zeolite to the filter compartment to remove ammonia. If any amount of ammonia is found, then it is important to check other vital water quality parameters, in particular pH, KH and nitrite.

Testing Aquarium Water:
If a level of 0.2 mg/l (ppm) is found, add a filter booster such as Filter Starter. If a level above this is found, then a substantial water change is essential. Change 25% of the volume for 0.5 - 1.0 mg/l (ppm) ammonia and 50% for ammonia levels above this. Add Ammonia Remover to the filter compartment to remove ammonia. If any amount of ammonia is found, then it is important to check other vital water quality parameters, in particular pH, KH and nitrite.

How to use:

  • Ensure the test tube is clean.
  • Take a 5 ml sample of water into the test tube.
  • Add 5 drops of the reagent Ammonia 1, 5 drops of Ammonia 2 and 5 drops of Ammonia 3.
  • Replace the test tube cap and shake thoroughly. Wait 10 minutes, then compare the colour of the sample to the colour scale provided. Zero ammonia is represented by a yellow colour. Any hint of green in the sample indicates the presence of ammonia in the water.
  • Contains 40 Freshwater tests

    Great for testing NH3 free ammonia only (as opposed to NH3 + NH4 total ammonia in most other kits). Easy to use & happy with the accuracy. Would recommend.
