**CUSTOMER NOTICE** Due to unforeseen circumstances caused by ill health, with much sadness we have decided to close Reef Lounge Aquatics. We would like to thank all our loyal customers, suppliers, family and friends who have been instrumental in growing the business and supporting us through our journey over the past 2 years. This was a very difficult decision for us to make and we would like to invite you all to a closing down sale which will begin this coming weekend. We look forward to seeing you all in the next few weeks. Best wishes The Reef Lounge team.

New, NT Labs NH3 Amonia test kit

Regular price £8.99

What is ammonia?
Ammonia is the main waste product produced by fish as a result of feeding. It can also be generated by the decay of uneaten food or decaying organic matter, such as plant leaves. It is invisible to the naked eye and its presence or absence cannot be determined by looking at the water alone. It is extremely toxic to the fish but is broken down into less toxic nitrite by the beneficial bacteria found in the filter.


What is the correct ammonia level?
There is no occasion where any ammonia is tolerable. A level of zero mg/l (ppm) should be maintained at all times.

What do I do if the ammonia level is wrong?
If a level of 0.2 mg/l (ppm) is found, add a filter booster such as Filter Starter. If a level above this is found, then a substantial water change is essential. Change 25% of the volume for 0.5 – 1.0 mg/l (ppm) ammonia and 50% for ammonia levels above this. Add Ammonia Remover to the filter compartment to remove ammonia. If any amount of ammonia is found, then it is important to check other vital water quality parameters, in particular pH, KH and nitrite.

How to use?

  • Ensure the test tube is clean.
  • Take a 5 ml sample of water into the test tube.
  • Add 5 drops of the reagent Ammonia 1, 5 drops of Ammonia 2 and 5 drops of Ammonia 3.
  • Replace the test tube cap and shake thoroughly. Wait 10 minutes, then compare the colour of the sample to the colour scale provided. Zero ammonia is represented by a yellow colour. Any hint of green in the sample indicates the presence of ammonia in the water.
