Frequently testing your water quality is one of the keys to successful fishkeeping.Â We developed Aquarium Co-Op Multi-Test Strips to be fast, comprehensive,Â and accurate â which makes testing your aquarium water easier than ever. Measure nitrate, nitrite, hardness (GH), buffer (KH), pH, and chlorine levels in just 60 seconds.
This test helps you understand your readings with helpful information and suggestions on the laminated color chart we've included. We created these to make your life easier and save you money when it comes to testing your water.
1. Holding the end of the test strip, dip into the aquarium so that all test pads are entirely submerged, and gently swirl the test strip for 3 seconds.
2. Remove the test strip from the aquarium without shaking the test strip. Keep the test strip horizontal for 60 seconds.
3. After 60 seconds, compare results to the color chart. For most accurate results, compare exactly at 60 seconds.
â Test strips expire 2 years after production.
