High Nitrate levels cause algae blooms and stress on corals. Keeping Nitrate under control is very important. With the aid of this test kit you will help ensure your aquatic pets live long, happy, healthy lives.
Nitrate (NO3) is the third step in the Nitrogen cycle where toxic Ammonia (NH3) is broken down by nitrifying bacteria and converted into Nitrite (NO2) then further into Nitrate (NO3). Some aquarium inhabitants are affected more by Nitrate than others, particularly coral. High Nitrate can result into algae blooms.
