Salifert aquarium water test kits are the epitome of accuracy and precision. Their wide range of available tests have all been designed to detect the smallest traces of certain elements, without interference from other chemicals within the water. Simply put, these are the best test kits you’ll be able to buy- hands down. The sharp, contrasting color changes make results easy to read so there is no second guessing. Consider your aquarium to Salifert. Detects small changes in carbonate hardness which can have an effect on pH and the growth of both fish and coral. Salifert Magnesium Profi-Test Magnesium is present in natural sea water in a quite high concentration (1350 – 1500 mg/L) and is an essential element of chlorophyll which is necessary for photosynthesis. Without photosynthesis plants, algae and coral would not be able to live on. Magnesium also helps to maintain the correct combination of calcium concentration and alkalinity as it slows down the formation of calcium carbonate which can absorb many important trace elements within the aquarium. Maintaining a correct magnesium concentration is therefore very important and is not directly responsible for fast coral and calcareous algae growth by making it conceivable to maintain correct calcium and alkalinity figures. Magnesium is depleted by algae growth and also by way of excessive kalkwasser or by going far beyond natural calcium, alkalinity and pH values. The Salifert Magnesium Profi-Test is easy to use and accurate with measurements in steps of 30 mg/L. Results don’t seem to be affected by strontium and calcium interference. Can be used for marine water only. Calcium and strontium will not interfere when their total concentration is between 200 and 650 ppm. This is mostly the case. Up to 50 tests.Warning!Keep out of reach of children. Not for consumption.
Alkalinity and calcium are needed to form the skeletal material of corals.
Alkalinity and calcium are not the only substance needed to form the skeletal material of corals.

The Salifert Combo Test Kit is sensitive enough to detect small changes in levels of alkalinity, calcium and magnesium. The test kit is easy to use and accurate.
