Elos USA ELOS AQUA TEST KIT- MAGNESIUM

Magnesium (Mg) is present in a high quantity (1300-1350 ppm) in natural seawater. Contrary to its not only quantitative significance, this element was ignored as an important parameter of the marine aquarium for a long time.
We know today that Magnesium creates a remarkable improvement in the growth of calcareous algae and also has a positive influence on the growth of invertebrates and macro algae. The ideal value of Magnesium in the aquarium is: 1100-1300 mg/Lt for the marine aquarium. Because of the importance of Magnesium, it is necessary to keep the proper level by testing it with an accurate test kit.

ELOS AquaTest Mg, as well as all titrimetric test kits of this line, grant very high precision thanks to several procedures like the use of calibrated droppers with constant and predefined drops of 0.03 ml each, the validation of our reagents, through NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) validation and the careful stock management to supply to our customers ONLY the freshest production batch.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • High quality system: one powder reagent and two liquids!
  • Standard sensibility: 100 ppm of Magnesium ions.
  • NIST validation: each batch of reagents 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 50 test (with a standard Mg level of 1100 ppm)
  • "Safe reagents": reagents and testing procedures are based on Low Risk Reagents. None of our test kits are based on Toxic Reagents.

    REVIEW
    What more can you ask for? It is very easy to use. Make sure you throw out the liquid after phase 1. Just keep track of the drops you put in. Then do phase 2 and keep track. Use their simple formula and you have a very accurate reading of your Mg. I used Salifert Mg test. I have found this one MUCH ...Read More

    REVIEW
    My wife does the testing (I take care of almost everything else) so I can only relate to what she has told me. We tried a few other test kits and the ELOS seemed to be inline with test results from other kits. My wife likes the ELOS test kits because in her opinion they are easier to use and we se...Read More

    I have always trusted Elos test kits and get good results with the CA and ALK kits. NOT THE SAME with the Mg kit. 1st test: reading 1600. Seemed high since I had not dosed for 2 months. Test 3 more times, same result. 2nd test: mixed new SW using Instant Ocean, 1700 was the result. Anyone famili...Read More

    REVIEW
    Good product, bad instructions. They do not tell you at least in the english verision that you have to dump the solution from pahse one of test bottle, and refill with aquarium water for phase two. I would have used all of part D, if I had not taken the time to research the intreuctions on line.

    Elos Vs Salifert

    reviewerbadge
    REVIEW
    Salifert is easier and quicker. Tried this one out only because rep told me it sells more. It gives you readings in a scale of 50 (i.e. 1300, 1350, 1400, 1450......). Still a good test but prefer Salifert due to "tighter" readings and quicker results.
