Seachem

Ammonia Alert is an innovative color device for continuously detecting and monitoring toxic free ammonia. A sensor changes reversibly from yellow to green to blue, relative to the ammonia concentration. No test kits, chemicals, or procedures are needed. The device detects less than 0.05 mg/L (ppm) free ammonia and alerts you to the #1 killer before any sign of stress. It lasts over a year and replacement sensors are available. Marine or freshwater use..

Specifications

In the absence of free ammonia the unit will assume a yellow or faint yellow-green color. It is normal for the dry sensor to have a greenish hue. It may take up to a few days for a dry sensor to equilibrate with the water. No sampling of water, chemicals, or test procedures are required. The presence of the free ammonia is detectable continuously with a response time of about 15 minutes. Response to decreasing ammonia is slower, requiring about 4 hours to go from TOXIC to SAFE on removal of ammonia.

INTERPRETATION: As little as 0.02 mg/L of free ammonia will produce a greenish hue on the detector surface. This corresponds to a total ammonia (both ionized and free ammonia) of 0.25 mg/L in marine water at pH 8.3. In freshwater at pH 7.0, this corresponds to 3.6 mg/L total ammonia. Free ammonia is much more toxic than ionized ammonia. As free ammonia, the ALERT color corresponds to about 0.05 mg/L, ALARM to about 0.2 mg/L, and TOXIC to about 0.5 mg/L. The ALERT concentration is tolerated for several days, ALARM for a few days, and TOXIC is rapidly harmful. This product is not recommended for use at acid pH

“Great item!”
5.0

Purchased this when starting my pico/nano reef. I used well cultured rock, so cultured it had communities of aiptasia in them! Haha! Although a good way to monitor ammonia, this is unneeded if using really good premium live rock. Although I no longer needed as my tank is now established (even ...Read More

“Seachem Ammonia Alert”
5.0

A must use if using Cupramine. Helps to monitor true ammonia and super easy to distinguish between levels. I used it for 5 months, took it out of water for 1 month and used it on another tank and it works fine.

This is a great tool for brine shrimp, baby seahorses and clowns, sick tanks, etc. It will help you know when to make your water change or add chemicals to detoxify the water. also great for rotifer tanks. It really works. Sooner Seahorse
