Measures ammonia to help prevent fish loss


  • Ammonia levels in fresh and saltwater aquariums

Follow API Easy Care Guide and use the AMMONIA TEST KIT:

  • During Regular Care
  • When addressing Water Problem Solving issues

Taking a few minutes each week to maintain and monitor aquarium conditions is the key to a healthy aquarium.   Tropical fish continually release ammonia into the aquarium through their gills, urine and solid waste.   Uneaten food and decaying organic matter also add ammonia to the water.  Even small amounts of ammonia stress fish; large amounts of ammonia will kill fish.  Ammonia is the number one killer of tropical fish.  The API® AMMONIA TEST KIT is mercury-free, salicylate test for fresh and saltwater fish.  The AMMONIA TEST KIT tests ammonia levels from 0 to 8 ppm.
