JBL Teste de nitrato NO₃
Quick test to determine the nitrate content in freshwater/marine water aquariums and in ponds

  • Determines optimum nitrate value for ideal plant growth or possible cause of algae in freshwater and marine water
  • Laboratory comparator system to compensate any inherent water colouring: fill glass vials with sample water, add reagents to another vial, place vials in holder, read values on colour chart
  • When to use: for setting up a new freshwater aquarium: once a week. For initial setup with marine water: once a week. In case of green algae problems
  • Laboratório online: análise gratuita e recomendações para os seus respetivos parâmetros de água medidos
  • Package contents: 1 quick test, Nitrate Test NO3. Contents for approx. 50 tests, incl. 2 reagents, 2 glass vials with screw caps, syringe, dosing spoon, comparator block and colour scale. Refill reagents available separately

Informações sobre o produto

Healthy aquarium/healthy pond with conditions close to nature
The right water values are dependent on the fish stock and the plants in the aquarium/pond. Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated. With bad values diseases or algae can appear in the aquarium/pond. To maintain a healthy aquarium/pond with conditions close to nature it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly.

For each water analysis JBL provides water tests in the form of quick tests or colour change tests. These determine a certain value or several values in one go. With these water tests you can recognise algae problems and negative nitrate, nitrite, potassium, magnesium values etc.

Why test?
Nitrate is the end product of the mineralisation in the aquarium/pond. Even in relatively high concentrations it is non-toxic for fish, but has an adverse effect on plant growth and the well-being of several fish species. Furthermore too high nitrate contents promote unwanted algae growth if phosphate is present in the water as well as nitrate.

Recommended nitrate values:
Freshwater aquarium (community aquarium): 0-50 mg/l
Lake Malawi/Lake Tanganyika aquarium: 0-50 mg/l
Plant aquarium with few fish (aquascaping): 10-30 mg/l
Marine aquarium: 0-20 mg/l
Pond: 0-10 mg/l.

You can analyse the water values you have measured in the JBL Online Laboratory free of charge and receive recommendations.

FAQ
I have lost my colour chart. Can I download the colour chart for the test?

The colour cards are not available for download on the JBL homepage. For this a guaranteed true colour print is required, and you need a printer which can be re-calibrated before each printout. Most privately used printers are not accurate enough for this.

We will happily send you a new colour chart bundle with all individual colour charts for the JBL tests free of charge. Please forward the JBL customer service your address.

What can I do when the measured value of a water test falls outside the scale?

If one of your measurements reaches the end of the colour chart scale you can multiply the scale, by diluting the following tests with distilled water (e.g. JBL Dest).

Here’s how to do it: dilute the sample with distilled water and carry out the test once more.

Her’s how in greater detail:
JBL GH test kit: Instead of 5 ml use 10 ml aquarium water. Now 1 drop is equivalent to 0.5 dGH.
JBL KH test kit: Instead of 5 ml use 10 ml aquarium water. Now 1 drop is equivalent to 0.5 dGH.

Note: when using 10 ml sample water the colour development is weaker with the first drops than with 5 ml sample water. Put the measuring container on a white underlay for a better readability.

JBL NH4/NH3 Ammonium/Ammonia test kit, JBL NO2 Nitrite test kit, JBL Fe Iron test kit and JBL Cu Copper test kit:
2.5 ml sample + 2.5 ml dist. water: result times 2
1 ml sample + 4 ml dist. water: result times 5
0.5 ml sample + 4.5 ml dist. water: result times 10

NO3 Nitrate test kit, JBL SiO2 Silicate test kit, JBL PO4 Phosphate sensitive test kit and JBL Mg Magnesium test kit freshwater:
5 ml sample + 5 ml dist. water: result X 2
2 ml sample + 8 ml dist. water: result X 5
1 ml sample + 9 ml dist. water: result X 10

JBL PO4 Phosphate test kit koi high range:
2.5 ml sample + 2.5 ml dist. water: result X 2
1 ml sample + 4 ml dist. water: result X 5

JBL K Kalium test kit:
7.5 ml sample + 7.5 ml dist. water: result X 2
3.75 ml sample + 12.25 ml dist. water: result X 5
1.5 ml sample + 14.5 ml dist. water: result X 10

JBL CO2 direct test kit, JBL Ca Calcium test kit and JBL Mg+Ca Magnesium+Calcium test kit:
not required

Which scale applies for my aquarium? My test has two or three control fields with fish and recommendations.

We repeatedly receive questions regarding the symbols on the water test. The hobby areas cannot be clearly assigned to the scales for analysis. There are three symbols to make the hobby areas on the colour charts clear:

Discus = fresh water
Emperor = salt water
Koi = garden pond

In the following, you will find a list which assigns the scale for analysing the results from measurements in the hobby area and explains the symbols: The scales are described from the top to the bottom here.

NO3: salt water, fresh water, garden pond
pH 6.0 – 7.6: fresh water, garden ponds
pH 7.4 – 9.0: salt water, fresh water, garden pond
Fe: fresh water, garden pond

The following JBL tests have a uniform scale for all 2 or 3 hobby areas for analysis of the results from the measurements, as differentiation is no longer necessary:

SiO2
Cu
NH4
NO2
PO4
pH 3-10
O2

Which of the three scales on the colour cards symbolize of the water tests saltwater, freshwater and garden pond ?

koi carp = garden pond
angel fish = saltwater
discus = freshwater

My nitrate test indicates measurement results which I can’t read or which are far too low.

The reason is often an incorrect use of the test. It is important to shake the test vigorously for precisely one minute. All the other important steps can be read in the instructions.

Fertilization is not just fertilization Part 1

Unlike in natural waters, aquariums with fish mostly have a surplus of nutrients caused by feeding and the resulting fish excrement. Thus nitrates and phosphates in large (often too large!) quantities are available for the plants.
