Yes, it is true that having a successful aquarium and aquaculture in your reef or freshwater system comes from maintenance and testing to see what maintenance is necessary! Starting out with quality water (like from a RODI system) is critical, but the need for weekly or bi-weekly water changes are also necessary to remove toxins and waste that your protein skimmer is not removing. A testing kit is the perfect tool to check your water and keep up with its maintenance.
Whether it is removing ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, silicates, or phosphates or balancing pH, alkalinity, and other supplements that you add to your “Build an Ocean System”™, aquarium testing kits are available from many manufactures. By testing your water, you are being proactive with your aquarium and finding problems before they become disasters. You can use test strips for quick and easy testing. Drops or tablets also provide good testing kits for your aquarium water. For testing salinity, the newer technology, such as a Refractometer, is a quick way to measure specific gravity and salinity.
