Elos Aqua Test Kit – Iron Temporarily Out of Stock


SKU: EO7171 Category:


A deficiency or excess of Iron in the aquarium can put at risk the balance of the entire eco-system. In freshwater, a lack of iron makes the plants turn yellow and decay rapidly. In sea water, iron is essential for symbiotic algae, vital to the survival of many species of invertebrates, for phytoplankton and of course for macro-algaes.

Iron, even as a chelate, remains available for a very short time, so its concentration should be periodically verified to ensure that its level is maintained between 0.1-0.6 mg/l (ppm) in fresh water and 0.002-0.05 mg/l in seawater.
