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.

Tropic Marin: A strong foundation in science and hobby: The successful methods and techniques of today`s marine aquarists are the result of a close collaboration between serious hobbyists, scientists and specialists at public aquariums. Tropic Marin came about in exactly the same way over 30 years ago! This close cooperation resulted in one of the first complete one-part synthetic marine salt mixtures that provided the optimum natural environment for the professional as well as the private aquarist.

Hard to Read, Tedious to Use

REVIEW
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
