Tropic Marin

For the determination of the carbonate hardness or the alkalinity in seawater.

The carbonate hardness or alkalinity corresponds to the buffer capacity of the aquarium water and therefore determines the stability of the pH-value in the water. With these tests the carbonate hardness and alkalinity can be measured with precision in ┬░dKH. The test liquids show a pronounced and obvious color change and are sufficient for approx. 100 tests.

alk test

I would rather have a glass test tube with 5 & 10 ML marks than to use a syringe. Luckily I have one from another kit. The actual test works very well and is easy to do.

Dropper is the worst

The kit is good overall, the color change is spot on and easy to read. The bottle leaks so some drops my stray when turning the bottle over to drop into the vial. Once the first drop leaks out, the others are a little easier to manage.

Great Test Kit

Alk is really important in a reef tank. Especially an SPS dominated tank. Low or swinging Alk can cause poor colors. This is an easy to use test kit so it makes the chore of testing your Alkalinity easy.

GREAT

SUPER easy test. I normally use the Elos but since I lost my job I have to save money where I can so I tried this and I will be staying with it, even when I get a job. Color changes are instant and extremely east to see. The change from green to red is as drastic as a stoplight.

Easy to use but...

This test kit is incredibly easy to use but it only measure DKH in increments of 1.0 DKH. This would be perfect of they let you measure DKH in increments of at least 0.5 to ensure a more accurate reading.

Easy and

Exceedingly simple to use. Simple one step titration. I really like that you easily double your testing sample and adjust the interpretation of your results accordingly to get a more precise reading.
