In nature the population of zooxanthelle is controlled by the level of nutrients (nitrates and phosphates) present in the water. In a modern reef aquarium environment control of zooxanthelle, through the reduction of nutrients (nitrates and phosphates), is the best way to get natural colouring of the corals. For this reason it has been a source of study for many years leading to the creation of a multitude of "Management Methods" (Low Nutrients / Ultra Low nutrients).
Whether you are using microbiological methods or methodologies more traditional, when using these systems it is a good rule to keep constantly under control the level of nitrates and phosphates.
Its precise colorimetric scale with DUAL RANGE, allows you to read the level of nitrates in a range between 0 and 4ppm with a minimum reading of only 0.15 ppm of nitrate. Alongside the similar test ELOS Phosphate HR, constitutes the best system for full control of the level of nutrients.
