King British 6 in 1 Water Test Strips can be used to check aquarium or pond water quality in seconds. Includes tests for levels of Ammonia, Nitrate, Carbonate Hardness, Nitrite, pH & General Hardness. Contains sufficient test strips to check all six parameters every week for 25 weeks, thus aiding you to monitor water quality & keep fish in optimum health.

1. Using a clean container obtain a sample of water from the aquarium or pond for testing.

2. Using dry hands remove test strip from container without touching the test pads.  Immediately close cap.

3. Dip the strip into the container of water, ensuring that all the pads are fully immersed.

4a. 5 in 1 strip – immerse for 2 seconds, remove and hold the strip horizontally, test pads facing upwards (do not shake off excess solution).  After one minute compare the test pads to the colour chart on the container.

4b. Ammonia strip – immerse for 5 seconds, then remove and hold the strip horizontally, test pads facing upwards (do not shake off excess solution). After one minute compare the test pad to the colour chart on the container. It can be useful to make a note of the results & the date using the table in the enclosed Water Quality Care Guide. If necessary, carry out any actions required to improve the water quality.  Advice on how to improve the water quality can be found in the enclosed Water Quality Care Guide.

Good points:
Really quick and easy to use. I like that you can check the tank regularly to ensure optimum conditions for the fish and it's no hassle. Quicker than making a cup of tea! I can relax knowing my fish are swimming in a comfortable climate and my only worry now is to place in fresh plants and change a few ornaments every now and then to ensure they don't get bored :)
Bad points:
No bad points all good and very effective.

  • My goldfish is gasping at the water surface. What should I do?

    The first thing to do is to test the water – especially for ammonia and nitrite. High ammonia and nitrite cause fish to suffer respiratory problems, and they will gasp at the water surface to try to get some oxygen. Low dissolved oxygen (DO) could also be a problem. You need to increase the aeration immediately, and carry out a partial water change. It is important to find out the cause of the incident to prevent it from happening again. Check that the filter is working correctly and that the tank is not dirty. Make sure you maintain the tank regularly and change the water. Oxygen is consumed by excess waste and sludge in the aquarium, so if you have a problem with low DO, make sure that it is not caused by a build-up of dirt and sludge! Keep your tank clean by siphoning the gravel every few weeks and by removing uneaten food.
