Coming soon from Fauna Marin

Keeping phosphate levels low in a reef aquarium is important for your inhabitants' health. Fauna Marin (an Advanced Aquarist sponsor) debuted their new phosphate test kit at MACNA 2011.  The kit contains enough reagents for 100 tests and is sensitive down to 0.020 mg/L phosphate.

Supplied with the kit are a syringe, a set of reagent bottles, comparator containers and holder, and color chart. Measurable levels on the color chart are 0.00, 0.020, 0.040, 0.060, 0.080, 0.10, 0.14, 0.18, 0.25, 0.35, and 0.50 mg/L as seen in the above photo. One nice feature of the test kit is that the comparator holder color is yellow which gives a nice distinction when comparing increasingly darker shades of blue indicating higher concentrations of phosphate.

Look for the new test kit in the coming months in a local store near you and online.
