Get ICP Results in 1-2 Weeks! - Tested in the USA
This ICP will test your aquarium’s water for 40+ elements down to the parts per million (ppm), or even parts per billion (ppb), surpassing the accuracy of any hobby level test kits.
ICP Water Analysis
Complete elemental water analysis in 3 easy steps:
What is ICP?
Inductive Couple Plasma, or ICP, is an instrument commonly used for testing when complying with the EPA regulations in food and environmental issues. ICP will test your aquarium’s water elements down to the parts per million (ppm), or even parts per billion (ppb), surpassing the accuracy of any hobby level test kits.
How does ICP work?
Salt water is injected into a plasma chamber that is approximately 10,000 degrees Celsius. This extreme temperature breaks everything in the sample apart into the basic elements. Every element is then released at a specific wave length and the machine measures the concentration of the element by how much energy is released at that specific wave length.
Why is ICP testing for your water so important?
Research has shown time after time that certain trace elements are necessary for the growth, reproduction and color of many corals. Knowing exactly what is in your tank’s water will help you troubleshoot issues, see what is missing from the water that may be inhibiting coral growth and coloration, or simply help you make educated adjustments to give your corals the best possible environment to thrive. Is this test only for aquarium water? Certainly not. It is beneficial to test your drinking water to insure that chemicals, metals or other harmful elements are not ingested by your family or pets.

ICP Test for 40+ elements including:
Aluminum, Arsenic, Barium, Beryllium, Boron, Cadmium, Calcium, Cesium, Chlorine, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Iodine, Iron, Lanthanum, Lead, Lithium, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Mercury, Nickel, Phosphorus, Potassium, Rubidium, Scandium, Selenium, Silicon, Sodium, Strontium, Sulfur, Vanadium, Zinc etc.
Spherical Phosphate-Adsorption Media for Use in All Freshwater & Marine Aquaria
Advanced adsorbent of phosphate and silicate; provides rapid results.
May be used on an on-going basis as part of a sensible nutrient-control program.
Spherical shape and porosity maximize reactive surface area; promotes reactivity and efficiency by maximizing contact time and minimizing tendency to pack and channel water, and outperforms competing non-spherical phosphate-adsorbent media.
Recommended usage is 2 g of Extrax Phos per 1 US-gallon (3.8 L) in aquarium; 600 grams will adsorb up to 20 mg/L phosphate in 300 US-gallons (1,136 L).
Does not release phosphate, silicate, or soluble compounds into aquarium system .
Safe for use in all freshwater and marine aquaria, including freshwater planted systems and reef systems.
Immediately Improves Water Quality in all Reef, Marine and Freshwater Aquaria
Immediately improves water quality in all manner of aquaria by enhancing the rate of particulate and dissolved organic material decomposition, enabling the constituents to be more effectively removed with protein skimming, activated carbon, and other means of biological and chemical filtration.
Safe for use with all fishes, invertebrates, and plants.
Particularly useful: in heavily-stocked, heavily-fed aquaria; during "hiccups" in water
quality in which the elevated concentration of organic material in the aquarium would negatively impact the health of the inhabitants.
Reacts completely; leaves no residual.
Formulated by a marine scientist.
Ionically Balanced Powered Calcium & Alkalinity for all marine fish & reef aquaria
The calcium-bearing component of a two-part method for dosing calcium and carbonates (the substances largely responsible for increasing alkalinity (”buffering capacity”)) in the same ratio as that found in natural seawater.
Benefits reef-building organisms such as corals, clams, calcareous algae, etc.
Simplifies calcium and alkalinity maintenance; economical for particularly large systems.
Contains no phosphate, silicate, or organic material.
Formulated by a marine scientist.
Complete Bioculture for all Freshwater and Planted Aquaria
Suspension of non-pathogenic aerobic and anaerobic microbes, as well as natural
enzymes, specifically formulated to establish biological filtration in new aquarium set-ups,and to enhance the rate of nitrification, denitrification, and organic waste degradationthrough complete nutrient remineralization. Specifically formulated for use in freshwater aquaria.
Particularly useful in freshwater aquaria with high population densities of fish species thatare active swimmers and/or require frequent feeding.
Supplied in a state of suspended animation for maximum longevity.
Formulated utilizing extensive data compiled by microbiologists.
