Alongside the announcement of their new Elemental additives, this year Fauna Marin is also kicking off a new line of aquarium test kits. Aqua Home Test is Fauna Marin’s take on the at-home testing kit and will cover basic mineral chemistry such as Calcium, Magnesium, Alkalinity & Potassium as well as the nutrients Nitrite, Nitrate and Phosphate.
Fauna Marin’s German-made Aqua Home Test kits will be able to perform 50 tests of a given parameter. One thing that we do find very practical is the ranges that these tests are designed to measure are more conducive to modern reef keeping ranges.
For example, the Nitrate test kit resolution ranges from 0 to just 20 mg/l in nice neat increments, so you won’t be left wondering if your readings are just a little high (20mg/l) or really high (100mg/l). The Aqua Home Test by Fauna Marin is designed to compliment their (European) ICP testing service and being made in Germany and formulated with recent methods and protocols, we expect these tests to be among some of the best in the hobby when they become available.
