    When there are insufficient areas of a tank which are deprived of oxygen (anaerobic zones) or denitrification is not taking place properly, nitrate will build up. This can also happen in an aquarium where the biological loading on the system is causing an imbalance e.g. if there is excessive livestock for the aquarium volume or over feeding is occurring.

    The build up of nitrate can result in unwanted algae growth and the slowing down of coral growth.

    The nitrate concentration in a reef aquarium should be lower than 1 mg/L, although fish only aquariums would usually have a higher concentration.

    Just as with nitrite, many nitrate test kits are prone to amine interference which can make the levels of nitrate appear much lower than they actually are.

    The Salifert test kit does not suffer from such interference and gives accurate and quick results with a total testing time of less than 3 minutes.

    The test kit's range goes from a very low to a very high nitrate concentration (approx. 0.2 - 100 mg/L as total nitrate).

    Sufficient for 50 tests.

    This test offers two ranges:

    Low range: 0.2 - 10 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.

    Medium range: 2 - 100 mg/L (ppm) as nitrate.

    Clean test vial and scoop after use. Store this kit in a dry place.

    1. Effective Nitrate Test Kit Review by DKokoMan

      Best Nitrate test kit I have found so far for ease of use and accuracy. My API test kit would not measure the low end of the nitrates which was leaving me in the dark for my parameters. I was able to pinpoint my Nitrate via colour to below 10ppm instead of 0-20ppm.

      I find the colour comparison difficult at times. The darker shades of pink are easily visible and let you know if your out of whack. That being said as long as there is a hint of pink your good and not at "0". (Posted on 8/14/2017)

    2. Very accurate Review by 72 gallon

      Was having issues with my tank because my API test kit was reading 0 nitrates. When testing with this kit it read 100 ppm for nitrates. Very accurate. Would recommend. (Posted on 3/7/2017)

    3. Good kit Review by Steve

      Lots of tests with this kit. Simple to use like all other Salifert kits I've used. (Posted on 11/17/2016)
