Salifert Potassium Reef Test Kit Overview
Salifert Potassium Test Kit Potassium concentration in natural seawater is approximately 400 ppm.Many aquarists have reported that a low potassium value Will reduces colors in corals. This can be corrected by increasing the potassium value to the normal natural concentration. Now you can accurately measure this value with the new Salifert Potassium Reef Test kits.
The Potassium reef test can be performed in about 90 seconds. This tritatic test kit has a sharp color change, going from yellow to blue, when you hit the level in the sample.
The Salifert Potassium Test Kit is unique among titration tests. It measures potassium levels in a reef aquarium with an accuracy of plus or minus 3ppm. It enables the dosing of potassium supplements.
To test your potassium levels:
Add 1 ml of water from your aquarium to the vial.
Add 0.5 ml of Reagent 1 and then swirl it for about 20 seconds.
Add three drops of Reagent 2.
Add Reagent 3 drop by drop until the color goes from white into blue, swirling after you add each drop. Clean vial after each use.
The end result will show you your ppm level of potassium in the tank. If you have used potassium products in your aquarium, the levels may be higher. After conducting this potassium test, you may find that your tank does not need supplementation of potassium.
