Measuring water values in a marine aquarium is a science of itself which might be especially difficult for beginners in the starting. In addition to the density in the marine tanks – one of the most important parameters is the measurable values of carbonate hardness, calcium, magnesium as well as the nitrate value and the phosphate value in water should be tested regularly easily with tests. In this category of our online shop you will find technical tools like GHL aquarium computer, Alkatronic kh systems and Reefbot as fully automatic measuring system.

There are many products that automate a lot when keeping an aquarium.
A aquarium computer can, for example, measure the temperature and a connected aquarium heating element on / off. The pH is measured, the Redox (ORP) which is of great importance if you use an ozone generator. You can also have an aquarium computer execute commands, for example while feeding the fish, the feed pump and the skimmer will switch off and be switched on again after 10 minutes.
Alkatronic is a system that automatically measures the kh of the seawater aquarium and automatically doses the kh in combination with a Dosetronic the self-set dosing program is automatically adjusted if, for example, the kh is too high or too low.
Regularly checking whether the measuring instruments work well is also very important, you do this easily by using Reference fluids. Never place the measuring pin in the bottle of the reference liquid, but pour a little liquid into a clean glass (eg from an old test set) and place the measuring pin in it, so that the remaining reference liquid remains pure.
