JBL Ammonium Test NH4

Quick test to determine ammonium/ammonia content in freshwater/marine water aquariums and ponds

  • Simple and reliable monitoring of the aquarium/pond water values. Checks the biological balance (bacterial activity) in freshwater and marine water
  • Laboratory comparator system to compensate for any inherent water coloring: fill glass vials with sample water, add reagents to another vial, place vials in the holder, read values on the color chart
  • When to use: for setting up a new freshwater aquarium: once a day. Initial setup with marine water: once a week. For use in case of fish diseases or fish deaths
  • Online Laboratory: free analysis and recommendations for the water values you have measured.

Package contents:

1 quick test, Ammonium Test NH4.

Contents for approx. 50 measurements. Incl. 3 reagents, 2 glass vials with screw cap, syringe, comparator block, and color scale.

Healthy aquarium/healthy pond with conditions close to nature.

The right water values are dependent on the fish stock and the plants in the aquarium/pond. Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated. With bad values diseases or algae can appear in the aquarium/pond. To maintain a healthy aquarium/pond with conditions close to nature it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly.

For each water analysis, JBL provides water tests in the form of quick tests or color change tests. These determine a certain value or several values in one go. With these water tests, you can recognize algae problems and negative nitrate, nitrite, potassium, magnesium values, etc.

Why test?
The degradation or mineralization process of all organic substances in the aquarium and pond follows these stages: proteins > ammonium > nitrite > nitrate. By measuring these stages conclusions can be drawn about the “functioning” of the systems aquarium and pond. If the ammonium or nitrite level is too high it can lead to disturbances of the bacterial balance. Ammonium is not usually measurable in a maintained aquarium with an effective biological filter and in a correctly set up garden pond. Ammonium is an important plant nutrient and is normally non-toxic for fish. But depending on the pH value ammonia, which is toxic for fish, can be formed from the ammonium ion.

Recommended ammonium values:
Freshwater aquarium (community aquarium): < 0.25 mg/l
Lake Malawi/Lake Tanganyika aquarium: < 0.25 mg/l
Plant aquarium with few fish (aquascaping): < 0.25 mg/l
Marine aquarium: 0-0.25 mg/l
Pond: <0.1 mg/l.

You can analyze the water values you have measured in the JBL Online Laboratory free of charge and receive recommendations.
