JBL ProAquaTest KH Carbonate Hardness is a quick test for simple and reliable monitoring to determine the ideal carbonate hardness (KH) in freshwater and marine aquariums and ponds. To test simply fill the plastic cuvette with sample water, add reagent drop by drop until colour changes from blue to yellow. Number of drops = level of carbonate hardness. Ideal to start using when you set up a new aquarium and test once per week upon setup and thereafter run the test once a month. You will find detailed information and troubleshooting tips about water analysis on the JBL website in Essentials/Aquarium or Pond. Package contents: 1 KH quick test, incl. one reagent and plastic cuvette.
The well-being of aquarium and pond dwellers and the healthy growth of aquatic plants depend to a large extent on the KH level being kept as constant as possible. The carbonate hardness is one of the most important water values since it keeps the pH level stable. The KH should never drop below 4 °dKH.
Recommended KH values:
Freshwater aquarium (community aquarium): 5-12 °dKH
Lake Malawi/Lake Tanganyika aquarium: 7-20 °dKH
Plant aquarium with few fish (aquascaping): 3-8 °dKH
Marine aquarium: 7-10 °dKH
Pond: 7-10 °dKH
