Nitrate is the end product of biological filtration and the result of decomposition of nitrite. It can also be present in tap water supplies. It is a key cause of algae growth and in high concentrations can cause fish and plant health problems as they are starved of nutrients.
Use the Nitrate Test Kit every 1-2 weeks to monitor levels properly and use Tetra Nitrate Minus to remedy the problem. In a new set up you may need to test every few days to make sure that the filtration system is working properly.
This kit uses a colour change system to give accurate results, simply compare your findings to the colour chart included.
