Who Is This Product For?

The Fritz Ammonia Test Kit is designed for aquarium hobbyists who want to maintain optimal water conditions in their tanks. This kit is particularly vital during the initial setup of a new tank when ammonia levels can spike due to the absence of a fully established biological filter. It’s also indispensable for ongoing maintenance, helping to detect any increases in ammonia levels due to overstocking, inadequate filtration, or interruptions in the biological filter.

How to Use

Regularly testing for ammonia with the Fritz Ammonia Test Kit allows you to address any issues promptly, ensuring the ammonia level in your tank remains at a safe 0 ppm. This helps prevent symptoms of ammonia poisoning, such as heavy breathing, gasping at the surface, clamped fins, and discoloration, ensuring your aquatic life thrives in a healthy environment.
