Tropic Marin Calcium / Magnesium Test Kit


TP4117

This item has been discontinued.

Tropic Marin

For measuring magnesium and calcium concentrations in seawater.

Magnesium and calcium concentrations and the ratio between these two elements are constantly changing in marine aquariums due to assimilation into the skeletons of corals and coralline algae and the process of precipitation. A periodic check of magnesium and calcium concentrations is necessary to determine the amounts of these elements that needs to be added to the aquarium in order to restore them to natural seawater levels.

The Magnesium-Calcium-Combitest consistently determines the exact concentration of each of these elements separately. Each Magnesium-Calcium-Combitest kit contains reagents for approx. 30 tests.

“Hard to Read, Tedious to Use”
2.0

Hard to tell when solution is no longer blue compared to the control as the colors never really match. One of the syringes does not have a black O-ring at all so not sure how to read the value for that test and the other has a black one that is the same color as the lines so it's very hard to read t...Read More

AND, you cannot test the magnesium unless you test the calcium first(you have to use the same solution from the calc...Read More
