What is Salifert Calcium Profi-Test Kit?


Your marine friends need safe, toxin-free water to grow and thrive in, so make sure their home is safe with Salifert Aquarium Calcium Test Kit. Fantastic for measuring calcium levels in your aquarium’s water, this test kit can immediately and accurately perform checks and resolve calcium contents, meaning you can rest easy knowing your pals are swimming in safe water. These tests can detect these toxins with an accuracy of 10 mg/l. In addition, these tests change color, detecting even minor fluctuations so you can find them early on for vital intervention as needed so your fish, plants, and other marine friends can swim about happily and healthily.


Trusted by discerning reefers for years, Salifert Test Kits feature some of the easiest-to-read results available. Their test kits include easy-to-follow instructions and clear, accurate results. Salifert test kits are also the most economical; the Salifert Calcium Test Kit will typically deliver upwards of 50 tests per kit.


How Does Salifert Calcium Profi-Test Kit Work? 


Calcium is a principal constituent of calcareous algae, the skeletal material of hard corals, and the skeletal needles of soft/leather corals. Calcium also fulfills many biological functions. Quite often, a too low calcium concentration retards coral and calcareous algae growth. NSW contains 400 to 450 mg/L calcium. For a stable aquarium environment, the fluctuation in calcium content should preferably not be more than approximately 15 mg/L; this automatically means that the calcium test should monitor comparable fluctuations. Conclusion: In a healthy aquarium, the growth and multiplication of corals, desired calcareous algae, and other organisms result in calcium depletion. Because of the importance of calcium, timely corrective measures would have to be taken.

A proper calcium additive and an accurate test kit are required for that purpose. Our calcium test can resolve the calcium content in 10 mg/L steps. The color change is sharp and facilitates the detection of small but highly significant fluctuations in the calcium concentration. Salifert is the only one offering true accuracy and precision as claimed. The kit can perform approx. 50 - 100 measurements. Salifert's Coral Calcium additive is manufactured using a very special procedure. This results in a highly concentrated additive that not only makes calcium addition easy it also avoids the ionic balance being disturbed when used in combination with our KH + pH Buffer or any other sodium-based buffer. Common additives, which contain only calcium chloride or improper use of kalkwasser (calcium hydroxide), can upset the ionic balance resulting in aquarium water being very different from NSW.
