Use aquarium controllers, monitors and test kits to measure key water parameters.
The very sensitive and accurate Easy-Life Phosphate testkit is suitable for fresh water and marine aquariums. There are two different ranges within the testkit. A low range from 0.00 - 0.10 mg/l (ppm) and high range from 0 - 2.5 mg/l (ppm). The Easy-Life Phosphate water test only needs 1 reagent!
Potassium is a macronutrient which means it's 100% essential for healthy plant growth. Combined with nitrates and phosphates (which incidentally DO NOT cause algae), potassium is very important. Up until now, hobbyists were unable to test for potassium so ended up guessing (not a good idea). Not anymore though. This rather excellent test kit allows you to measure in a healthy range ( 10-15 mg/l). The Easy-Life Potassium test is a color test with a color chart.
Note about optimum levels:
Sufficient potassium in your aquarium will lead to poor plant growth. Yellowing of leaves which in the past was often confused with lack of iron may well have been a lack of potassium. This test kit removes any guess work which means you can work out of your plants need more.

Test strips are the fast and reliable way to evaluate the water quality in your freshwater aquarium or pond.
The Easy-Life 5 in 1 water test strips quickly provide you with reliable information on most important water quality measurements in your aquarium.
Simply dip the strip briefly into the water for about 30-60 seconds and then compare it with the colour scale on the packaging.
Each bottle contains 50 test strips each for testing.
