Tropic Marin pH Test

The pH value or “degree of acidity” indicates how acidic or basic(alkaline) water is. Pure water is neutral and has a pH value of 7. If the acidic components outweigh the alkaline components, the pH value falls (pH < 7), if the alkaline components outweigh the acidic components, the pH value rises (pH >7). Many organisms are extremely sensitive to significant fluctuations in the pH value.

In freshwater aquariums, the optimum pH value range for most fish and plants is between 6.5 and 7.2. However, special habitats such as Lake Malawi in Africa exhibit higher pH values of up to 9.0.

​In saltwater aquariums, the optimum pH value range is between 8.0 and 8.5, as it is in the ocean. Significant fluctuations and overly sharp decreases or increases in the pH value should be avoided at all costs. Therefore, the degree of acidity in the tank should be tested on a regular basis
