Complimentary Aquarium Water Testing
Maintaining the health of your aquatic pets is of utmost importance to us, and that starts with ensuring the water they live in is healthy and balanced. Regular water testing is a crucial step in keeping your aquarium clean, safe, and enjoyable for both you and your fish.
We’re proud to offer complimentary water testing services for both fresh and saltwater aquariums. All you have to do is bring a small water sample to our store, and one of our knowledgeable team members will test it free of charge.
How the complimentary water testing services works:
Pour 1/2 cup of aquarium water into a clean container (water bottles work great).
Bring your water sample to our store, and we'll test it while you wait for a range of factors that can affect the health of your fish.
Each water sample testing includes:
- pH levels
- Ammonia levels
- Nitrite levels
- Nitrate levels
- Alkalinity levels
- Hardness levels
All saltwater samples are tested for the following:
- Salinity levels (measured in parts per thousand or ppt)
- Calcium levels
- Magnesium levels
- Phosphate levels
Coral reef aquariums tested for:
- Carbonate levels
- Trace elements, such as iron, iodine, and strontium
Testing for these additional parameters is important for maintaining a healthy environment for your saltwater fish and invertebrates, and for promoting healthy coral growth in a reef aquarium. At North American Fish Breeders, we’re well-equipped to test for all of these parameters and can provide you with expert recommendations based on the results of your water test.
Whether you’re a seasoned aquarium owner or just starting out, we’re here to help you create the best environment for your aquatic pets.
Don’t let poor water quality harm the health of your fish – bring a water sample to North American Fish Breeders today, and let us help you maintain a thriving aquarium!
