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.

Because of the importance of Magnesium, it is necessary to keep the proper level by testing it with an accurate test kit, with the ideal value of Magnesium in the marine aquarium being 1100-1300 mg/Lt. 

ELOS AquaTest Mg permits the precise measurement of Magnesium values, allowing you to dose as necessary to keep the levels at their optimum.

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.

    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.

    Manufacturer Info

    ELOS America is the USA branch of a time-honored tradition. ELOS has been in business in Europe for over 25 years, and is recognized as one of the most innovative leaders in the aquarium industry. In 1997, ELOS was the first to discover that in closed systems, some species of corals (mainly SPS) significantly benefit (better colors and more rapid growth) from a reduced addition of organic additives (dissolved organic material), but only when compensated by a selective addition of high quality nourishment. Based on our groundbreaking and innovative research, ELOS introduced to the market a "Trio" of products to feed our corals – Omega (Amino Acids), SvC (planktonic Coral Food) and Pro-Skimmer (Carbonate Source).

    ELOS was also the very first company to produce LED lights for the aquarium, the first to produce a rimless tank, the first to use probiotics in our foods, and numerous other firsts. ELOS is committed to providing high quality products to the aquarium industry and customers quickly recognize our dedication to not only advancing the hobby through research and innovation, but also our dedication to elegant simplicity in design and use. With the addition of a dedicated staff and warehouse in the USA, we are renewing our commitment to provide our customers with the best possible solutions and products available.

    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

    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

    REVIEW
    This test kit is very easy to use, if you have already used alkalinity/calcium test kits you should have no trouble using this one. You will need to take 2 samples from your fish tank and count the number of drops it takes for the water to change its color using different chemicals with each sample....Read More

    REVIEW
    Once you get the hang of how to use this test kit, it's actually very easy. I read a couple of the reviewers comments before ordering it, and learned that the key here is that this is a TWO PART TEST. Be sure to dump out the first color change from red/orange to green; then count drops again for the...Read More
