- Red Sea Nitrate Pro (NO3) Test Kit
Maintaining low nitrate levels will help prevent algae outbreaks, promote coral and fish health as well as bring out the best coral colors. Red Sea Nitrate Pro (NO3) Test Kit accurately measures nitrate levels. Red Sea produces an algae management line of test kits including nitrate and phosphate test kits. Providing an accurate measurement of these elements allows for proper dosing and control of algae nutrient levels.
Red Sea Nitrate Pro Test Kit Includes:
- 100 tests
- Accuracy: ±0.125 ppm
- Range: 0-64 ppm
- Test Type: Color comparator
- Affordable reagent refills
A successful coral reef aquarium depends on how well you maintain the water parameters which are the key to a stable coral environment. Using Red Sea test kits will allow you to accurately measure these levels and guide you on your path to reefing success.
Better than most By David on 10/10/2018David would recommend this product to a friendI check Nitrates with a couple of different test kits every now and then. The Red Sea Nitrate Pro has been the most consistent of all of them. (My FOWLR tank is fairly stable and does not fluctuate much). Kit is reasonably easy to use too.
Excellent for low range By Ian B on 4/9/2018Ian B would recommend this product to a friendI've used Salifert test kits previously which were great for getting my tank up and running, and readings down to about 2ppm. Once you get to very low level of nitrates, this is the way to go. When Salifert was reading 0, the Red Sea kit gave a more accuracy below 2 ppm. When compared to each other, the two kits test the same in the 3-25ppm range. The Red Sea kit is a little more involved than the Salifert kit, and takes longer to complete (9 vs 6 minutes), but I think the colors are easier to read. You won't go wrong with either, but Red Sea is probably better if you are running a ULN tank.
Nice kit, but expect leaks on arrival By Aaron on 3/31/2018Aaron wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is the 3rd kit in a row where something leaked inside. The instructions and color card are all color stained, wet and nasty. I won't order another Red Sea test kit.
Good Product By Plauri on 1/17/2018Plauri would recommend this product to a friendSeems very accurate and I like that you can dilute sample for higher Nitrate levels
Spin wheel is not what the picture looks like By Jonathan on 9/27/2017Jonathan would recommend this product to a friendWorks great! You can definitely tell the difference in color, but it is not similar to the wheel you see in the picture. The only sucky part about this product is the double testing for low then to high nitrates. Testing will take about 15 minutes to complete.
I wish that was the real color wheel. By alex on 8/22/2017alex wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMore like guess the shade of pink or light purple. Why is there no hanna checker for nitrates ?
Great kit, scale to your needs By Eric on 8/20/2017Eric would recommend this product to a friendI'm coming back for a refill, so after many months of using the original kit I am still happy with it.
The kit comes with instructions for low range and high range
Low range resolution: 0, .25, .50, .75, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0
High Range Resolution: <4, 4, 8, 12, 16, 32, 64
Well I like to keep my nitrates at 2.0-4.0, aiming for 3.0. So with the 2 ranges given, neither are really ideal for measuring within the 2.0-4.0 range very accurately. On the low scale it's close to the top of the range, and it's not within range of the high scale. One of the things I like about this test is it's easy enough to make your own scale. With 4ml sample water and 12ml distilled water I can create an in between range with a resolution of <1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 16. Now I can more accurately measure a 3.0 reading.
Other easy scales to create:
8ml sample water/8ml DI water = <.5, .5, 1.0, 1.5, 2, 4, 8
2ml sample water/14ml DI water = <2, 2, 4, 6, 8, 16, 32
Good nitrate test By leepink23 on 4/9/2017leepink23 would recommend this product to a friendEasy to perform but takes 3 steps so it takes about 9 minutes. Easy to read, if your nitrates are higher than the color wheel then you have to redo the whole test to get the high range.
Great By Ed on 1/4/2017Ed would recommend this product to a friendGreat test kit. Easy to read colorimeter. For nitrate, this is the way to go.
Love it By Tvos on 11/10/2016Tvos would recommend this product to a friendLove red sea products , always consistent
I don't like Nitrate tests By Ramon on 10/15/2016Ramon would recommend this product to a friendI wish nitrate testing was as easy as alk/cal testing. However, coming from an API test kit, this is much much better.
I always ended up getting reagent on my hands with API, not so with Red Sea. Although it's still a lot of steps, equipment is high quality, easy to use/read, and doesn't make a mess.
I am not a fan By Dan on 9/9/2016Dan wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is a pretty complicated kit to use in my opinion, I had to stare at the instructions for quite sometime to figure it out. I feel that it is difficult to accurately determine the correct shade of your water.
