    Alkatronic is an all-in-one product for serious reefers to automatically monitor and stabilize alkalinity for your reef system. The standalone product works straight out of the box without the need of any additional dosing pump, computers or other equipment to use.

    The Alkatronic automatically monitors the alkalinity (KH) in your tank, as well as corrects any deviations within the user’s settled reference intervals by dosing carbonates from its own dosing pump or by activating a Bluetooth Smart Outlet (included).

    Calcium Reactor users can benefit from precise control over the CO2 to the Ca reactor through the included Bluetooth Smart Outlet controlled by the Alkatronic. As long as the dKH is below the set value, this outlet will be on and let the calcium reactor be controlled by the pH controller.  If the value rises above, it will override the ordinary regulatory equipment and shut off the CO2 until the dKH is back within range.

    WHAT IS ALKALINITY (KH)?

    Alkalinity is a means of quantifying the stability of pH in aquarium water. It is a measure of the concentration of various negatively charged ionic compounds (anions) such as carbonates, bicarbonates, borate and hydroxides in the aquarium water. Although a simple and affordable test, user error and time is taken out of the equation so that one can rest assured that their reef aquarium is safe and stable.

    WHY IS ALKALINITY ESSENTIAL?

    Alkalinity maintenance is a critical aspect of coral reef aquarium husbandry. If left unchecked, alkalinity can drop below a critical level and pH begins to fluctuate more wildly than the suggested daily pH shift of +/-0.2 for marine aquaria, causing stress to livestock. In a marine aquarium, the desired alkalinity is usually between 7° and 10° dKH (German Carbonate Hardness).

    The Alkatronic makes it possible to monitor the buffering capacity and automatically manage KH levels of your aquarium water in a simple all-in-one device.

  • Salifert Potassium Test Kit

    $28.80

    This kit is good for 40 tests.

    Whats Included?

    Instructions

    20ml K-1 Liquid Reagent
    10ml K-2 Liquid Reagent
    10ml K-3 Liquid Reagent
    2x 1mL Syringe
    2x Testing Vials

     

    Instructions:

    Importaint Note – Before commencing with each test it is very important to clean the nozzle (including the tip) of the K-3 dropper bottle with a paper tissue. Even if the nozzle looks clean and dry. Do this by applying a slight pressure on the tissue while cleaning

    Do NOT put the cap back on the K-3 bottle until the test has been completed.

     

    1. With the unlabeled syringe add 1mL of aquarium water to the test vial. There will be a small air bubble (approx. 0.05 mL) in the syringe do NOT attempt to remove the air bubble.

     

    2. Add 0.5 mL of K-1 using the red labeled syringe in the test vial. There will be a small air bubble (approx. 0.05 mL) in the syringe do NOT attempt to remove the air bubble. Swirl the test vial gently for at least 20 seconds.

     

    3. Add to the test vial 3 drops of K-2 while holding the dropper bottle in a vertical position. There is no need to swirl the test vial after this step.

     

    4. Add to the test vial K-3 one drop at a time, while holding the dropper bottle in a vertical position. Swirl the test vial for 2 seconds in between each drop of reagent. Continue adding K-3 while counting drops and swirling between each until the color changes from a white or yellowish color to a baby blue / light blue color. The change is very dramatic.

     

    5. After color change is complete compare number of drops to ppm potassium chart below.

     

    An extra testing vial is included with the kit for convenience and only a one vial is needed for a single test. That lets you to use one vial while the other is being cleaned. With potassium test kits it is important to keep reagent tips, syringes and testing vials clean for reliable readings.

    Holding the reagent bottle directly vertical will allow for even and consistent drops making readings reliable and repeatable.

  • Salifert Calcium Profi Test

    $29.80

    Our calcium test is capable in resolving 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 in offering a true accuracy and precision as claimed.

    The kit can perform approx. 50 – 100 measurements.

    Instructions:

    1. Add with 2 ml syringe 2 ml of water in the test vial. For a low resolution and more tests per kit add 1 ml instead of 2 ml.

    2. Add 1 spoon of Ca-1 (low resolution approx. 1/2 spoon) do not swirl yet.

    3. Add 8 drops of Ca-2 to the water in the test vial. and swirl gently for 10 seconds. For low resolution 4 instead of 8 drops.

    4. Put the plastic tip firmly on the 1 ml syringe. And draw into the syringe the Ca-3 reagent (ensure that the end of the plastic tip is constantly submersed in the Ca-3 reagent) till the lower end of the black part of the pistion is exactly at the 1.00 ml mark. There will be air present just below the piston. This is the air which was present between the end of the plactic tip and the piston. This will not influence the test result.

    5. Add dropwise with the 1 ml syringe the Ca-3 reagent to the water in the test tube. Swirl after each drop a second or two.

    Continue with this until color changes from pink-red to a clear blue color.

    6. Hold the syringe with the tip facing upward and read the position of the , now the upper end, of the black part of the piston. The syringe has graduations of 0.01 ml. Read the Calcium value from the table or calculate as follows.

    ppm Ca = (1 – reading in step 6) x 500

    If you have chosen for the lower resolution multiply the calculated result by 2.

    Natural sea water contains 400 – 425 ppm calcium. Use salifert’s Coral Calcium for good results.
