JBL Phosphate Sensitive Test Kit

JBL Phosphate Sensitive Test Kit –

Quick test to determine the phosphate content in freshwater /marine water aquariums and in ponds.

The right water values are dependent on the fish stock and the plants in the aquarium/pond. Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated.

With bad values diseases or algae can also appear in the aquarium/pond.

To maintain a healthy aquarium/pond with conditions close to nature it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly.

For each water analysis JBL provides water tests in the form of quick tests or colour change tests. These determine a certain value or several values in one go.

With these water tests you can also recognise algae problems and negative nitrate, nitrite, potassium, magnesium values etc.

Package contents: 1 quick test, Phosphate Test PO4. Contents for approx. 50 measurements. Incl. 2 reagents, 2 glass vials, with screw cap, syringe, dosing spoon, comparator block and colour scale. Refill reagents available separately

Why test? In an aquarium, phosphate primarily enters the water as a result of the digestive processes of the fish or in the form of food remains. In ponds, phosphate primarily enters the water as a result of leaves and dying pond plants/algae.

If conditions are unfavourable, the phosphate levels may reach values that are sometimes 100 times higher, and more, than natural levels.

Undesirable algae will then multiply exponentially as an inevitable consequence.

Recommended phosphate values:

  • Freshwater aquarium (community aquarium): 0-0.4 mg/l
  • Lake Malawi/Lake Tanganyika aquarium: 0-0.4 mg/l
  • Plant aquarium with few fish (aquascaping): 0.1-1.5 mg/l
  • Marine aquarium: 0-0.1 mg/l
  • Pond: <0.05 mg/l.
