Ammonia Alert Combo (Freshwater Only) By SeaChem uses Seachem sensor technology to continuously monitor ammonia & ph in your system. This Ammonia Alert Combo uses NO TESTS & NO STRIPS & can be used by Marine & Freshwater applications. The device detects less than 0.05 mg/L (ppm) free ammonia and alerts you to the #1 killer before any sign of stress. It lasts over a year.
Dexter's Pet Products is proud to work with companies such as SeaChem to offer our customers quality products for freshwater use:
Ammonia Alert® is an innovative color device for continuously detecting and monitoring toxic free ammonia. A sensor changes reversibly from yellow to green to blue, relative to the ammonia concentration. No test kits, chemicals, or procedures are needed. The device detects less than 0.05 mg/L (ppm) free ammonia and alerts you to the #1 killer before any sign of stress. It lasts over a year. Marine or freshwater use.
In the absence of free ammonia the unit will assume a yellow or faint yellow-green color. It is normal for the dry sensor to have a greenish hue. It may take up to a few days for a dry sensor to equilibrate with the water. No sampling of water, chemicals, or test procedures are required. The presence of the free ammonia is detectable continuously with a response time of about 15 minutes. Response to decreasing ammonia is slower, requiring about 4 hours to go from TOXIC to SAFE on removal of ammonia.
Ammonia Alert® lasts over 9 times as long as competing products (over a year compared to 4-6 weeks). Ammonia Alert® is also almost half the size of competing products (1.5" x 2.5"). It's small, clear, and unobtrusive, so it won't detract from the view of your aquarium.
No care is required beyond removing algae with a clean, soft material. Avoid touching the sensor with fingers, since skin oils can damage it. Do not use bleach, soap, detergents or hard objects to clean the sensor. Some dye medications may discolor the sensor.
Sensitivity improves with age, provided the unit is not allowed to dry out, however, drying does not permanently impair the unit. For maximum sensitivity, the unit should be read under natural daylight or daylight simulating light. Red enhancing light minimizes green and blue hues, decreasing the apparent sensitivity of the unit. The response of the unit may be checked by holding it briefly over the mouth of an ammonia bottle: color should develop rapidly.
pH Alert® is a unique color device designed to be placed in the aquarium or filter and monitor pH continuously. A sensor changes color reversibly to alert you shifts to in pH levels between 5.4 and 8.0. No tests, no strips, just constant readings. Freshwater Only.
pH Alert® lasts up to 4 times as long as competing products. pH Alert® is also almost half the size of competing products (1.5" x 2.5"). It's small, clear, and unobtrusive, so it won't detract from the view of your aquarium.
API® - Ammonia Test Kit - Measures ammonia to help prevent fish loss, as ammonia is the number one stressor and killer of tropical fish. The API Ammonia Test Kit is a mercury-free, salicylate test for fresh and saltwater fish, and levels ammonia levels from 0 to 8 ppm.
API® - Copper Test Kit - Allows you to easily and accurately monitor copper levels to maintain copper-based fish treatments at therapeutic levels, and tests copper levels from 0 to 4 ppm. The kit measures both free and chelated copper, and is for use in fresh and saltwater aquariums, or with ponds.
API® - High Range pH Test Kit - Measures pH changes in marine aquariums, aquariums with African Cichlids, and very alkaline tap water. This kit reads the pH of water within the high range of 7.4 – 8.8, and includes one bottle of test solution and one test tube. Product contains 160 tests.
API® - KH Carbonate Hardness Test Kit tests fresh or saltwater aquariums for carbonate hardness (KH), and helps monitor water quality and prevent invisible water problems that can be harmful to fish and plants. Includes 1 test bottle, easy-to-ready instructions, glass test tube and color chart
API® - Nitrate Test Kit tests for High nitrate levels in your aquarium, resulting in poor water quality and an increase in algae growth. The Nitrate Test Kit reads parameters from 0 to 160 ppm, and contains 2 bottles of liquid test reagent for 90 tests, 2 color cards for easy comparison, 1 glass test tube. It may be used for both fresh and saltwater...
API® - Nitrite Test kit tests Nitrites in parameters from 0 to 5 ppm which are produced as ammonia breaks down in the tank. With the Nitrite Test Kit, you can be sure that nitrite levels in your aquarium are always safe for your fish! Contains 180 tests and includes 1 test solution, easy-to-read instructions, glass test tube and color chart.
API® - Freshwater pH Test Kit monitors pH to maintain healthy freshwater conditions in your tank. Tests read pH from 6.0 – 7.6, and will help you quickly and easily determine whether your levels are too high or too low. Contains 250 tests and includes 1 test bottle, easy-to-ready instructions, glass test tube and color chart.
