  3. Hi. I was out and about today and heard an extraordinary claim at a LFS. Nothing unusual about that, but this one has peaked my curiosity. The claim went along the lines of a customer, with somewhat a background im biology, was setting up a new 1500L tank. To kick things along, they combined 473ml API CO2 Booster with double the amount of Quickstart. The result, observed under a microscope, was roughly a 3 fold increase in the bacteria population against just using Quickstart alone! Given that glut is not, for the most part, the most friendly of compounds, i'd been expending a result more akin to nuking a planet from orbit! But seemingly no. Has anyone heard of or come across similar information? I did a quick hunt but nothing immediately turned up. It would certainly be a very useful combination. Cheers.
  4. I want to add some API Quick start to my tank once I hook my sump back up to it do add enough Quick start for the tank plus sump volume or just the tank volume and is it safe to add it to the tank if I already have fish in it
  5. Okay so i got my 6ft tank set up its divided for breeding and i filled it up today with tank water and added API Quick Start to each section. Tanks have drift wood. Sponge filter and one section also has hang on filter. Question is can i add my peppermints straight into it? As it has the api quick start. Also got ammo lock should i add a cap full to each section too?

  9. Hi All. Great Deal of the Day Today - Age of Aquariums - API Freshwater Master Test Kit Ben
  10. So i tested my tank tonight, as per the norm, and ended up with an Ammonia reading of almost 2?! (first one on the left) As soon as i saw that i started draining the tank and done a few more tests... So, has anyone else ever had a problem with API testers? This is a first for me with Ammonia, but ive had trouble with the PH tests a few times now...
  11. Would welcome your views on API test kits. Tested for Nitrates this morning and got 20ppm with a kit that I bought 9 months ago. Tested again with a new kit and got 5ppm. This to a queery from another person a while ago from API: "Thank you very much for contacting us regarding our products. All of your comments and questions are valuable. We use your feedback to create the most effective line of aquarium and pond products available. Your solutions are not expired. Each reagent bottle has a Lot # printed on the bottle. The last four digits are the month and year of manufacture. Example: Lot # 28A0102. This is a pH reagent manufactured in January of 2002. Pond Care Wide Range pH, ammonia, High Range pH, Nitrate, phosphate, Copper, calcium and GH all last for three years. nitrite and KH will last for four years. Freshwater pH(low range) and Pond Care Salt Level will last for five years. I would not trust these kits after they have expired. Liquid Nitrate Test Kits from any manufacturer can have a common problem with their last test solution. For some companies, it is bottle number 3, but for us it is bottle number 2. One of the ingredients wants to solidify out of liquid solution. If the test bottle sits for any period of time, this can happen. If this does happen and the test is performed without Bottle # 2 mixed properly, then you can get a falsely low reading. I have never heard of falsely high readings with Nitrate Kits. I would try tapping your Bottle # 2 a few times on a table or counter top. This should loosen-up anything that has solidified. Then I would shake this bottle for about 2-3 minutes, to really mix it up. Try the test again and hopefully this will fix your problem. With regular weekly usage, this bottle should only need to be shaken for 30-60 seconds. Now if the older kit had solidified, as they sometimes do, thereby weakening the solution (drips) the older kit should have given me a lower reading not vice versa? kev
  12. Who in Brisbane area sells this , need some to day & AOA closed. Baz
  13. Hey guys, Picked up one of these from RPC on Bayfish trip day but it's actually a little bit of a riddle for me with the way the kits work. Does anyone have any experience with these kits? I've tested both my kH and gH and received the following figures. pH: 7.1 kH: 2dkH gH: 4dkH I'm quite happy with these figures but I'm unsure whether I've tested them correctly. Is it the drop that shows the first signs of changing colour? What's put me off is that in the guide book it says a bright yellow for the kH test kit, but it changes from blue to yellow on the second drop and then slowly gets a brighter yellow, so I presumed it was the initial change. Cheers, Ryan.
