Proper pH control is imperative to prevent the harmful effects of too alkaline or too acidic aquarium water on fish and plant life.
Tests pH levels from 6.0 to 7.6. 250 tests per kit.
Why Test pH? pH is the measure of acidity of water. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral. A pH higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and a pH lower than 7.0 is acidic. Certain freshwater fish thrive at a pH above 7.0. Live-bearers and goldfish require a pH of 7.5. African cichlids, marine fish and invertebrates require a pH between 8.2 and 8.4. Maintaining the aquarium at the proper pH ensures optimal water quality.
