Elos Aqua Test Kit - Calcium Information


Product Manuals & Documentation

ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- CALCIUM

Calcium is the primary building block of corals, clams, calcareous algae and many other organisms that we grow in our aquarium. Without adequate supplies of calcium these organism will not flourish and will eventually waste away and die.
The ideal value of calcium for a marine aquarium is between 380-450 mg/Lt (ppm) and for planted freshwater aquarium 100 mg/Lt (ppm). Because of the importance of calcium it is necessary to keep the proper calcium level inside our marine aquariums by testing it with an accurate test kit.

ELOS AquaTest Ca, as well as all the other titrimetric test kit of this line, offer very high accuracy thanks to several procedures including: calibrated lab droppers with consistent and predefined drops of 0.03 ml each, NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) certified samples to validate reagents and strict stock management to supply to our customers ONLY the freshest production batch available.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • High quality system: one powder reagent and two liquids!
  • Standard sensibility: 25 ppm of Calcium ions.
  • NIST validation: each batch is validated using NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) samples.
  • "C" reagent available as separate sales unit.
  • High number of test per kit: up to 40-50 test depending on Ca level.
  • "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. None of our test kits are based on Toxic Reagents.

    Comments: When you think of quality in a test kit you should think Elos. These guys are the Apple of aquarium test kits. Each kit is the highest quality all the way down to the directions and packaging. Accuracy is second to none and ease of use is the best I've seen. The price might be more than you want to go, but you always get what you pay for.

    Comments: This is the most precise test so far (as compared to Salifert, Seachem and API). That being said, it is also the most messy one: no matter how careful you try to be, the sample you are testing will be all over the place. Ditch their test vial and use a different one.

    Comments: This test is very good overall. The components included are of higher quality than the Salifert test. It does take a little longer to perform than the Salifert, but is likely more accurate and consistent (each batch of reagents checked with NIST). Resolution is 10ppm. I have nothing bad to say about it! Get one!

    Comments: Best test kit i've ever used, compared to API and Salifert this is the best one, i've tryed both of those with inconsistant results and had a harder time trying to maintain the right level's of Ca in the water collum, Elo's Test kits are the best by far and i wouldn't use anything else

    Good kit, NOT ENOUGH REAGENT A

    Comments: This kit seems to be quite good. Reagent D, included now, reduces the sensitivity level to 10 PPM, versus the old 25 PPM. MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT, however, is that there is NOT ENOUGH REAGENT A included. Each test requires 7 drops of it, out of a VERY SMALL BOTTLE. The other reagents are more than double the volume of this bottle. I have two tanks, and I test each weekly. This kit lasted only 2 months, as compared to Salifert (back when they used to be accurate), lasting almost 6 using it twice a week. So, I have a ton of the other reagents left, but, am out of the A reagent, rendering it useless.

    Comments: Coming from API and never using Salifert, I really enjoy these kits. The written directions and the directions on the back of the card are different so make sure you know what number of drops equals what levels. I had to contact the company and ask via email. Other than that the kits are great and I will keep using them!!!!!!!!
