Tetra Test 6 in 1 - (25 Strips)
With Tetra Test 6 in 1, quickly test the aquarium water to ensure it is in top condition, and to help avoid any problems.

  • Fast and easy testing of water quality
  • Dip test for checking 6 water quality indicators in just 60 seconds
  • Measures pH, Carbonate (KH), General Hardness (GH), Nitrite (NO2), Nitrate (NO3) and Chlorine (Cl2)
  • pH – the pH value describes the acidity or alkalinity of the water, which is very important for healthy fish. A value between 6.5 and 8.5 is ideal
  • KH – the bicarbonate hardness ensures a stable pH value. Values between 3° and 10° dH are generally recommended
  • GH – the general hardness has a direct influence on of the health of fish, plants and micro-organisms. A value between 6° and 16° dH is ideal
  • NO2 – a nitrite level of nearly zero shows that the filter is working properly and the water is safe for fish
  • NO3 – the nitrate content shows how ’fresh’ the water is, and also how likely it is to support algae growth
  • Cl2 – provides information about the water’s chlorine content. A value which is too high is harmful for useful bacteria and fish

Good water quality is vital for healthy fish and plants, however there is no way to visibly check this. For the wellbeing of the fish, it is  recommended to test every 2-3 days in a new aquarium, and once a week in established aquariums.
