Why Test pH? pH is the measure of acidity of water. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral. A pH higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and a pH lower than 7.0 is acidic. Maintaining the aquarium at the proper pH ensures optimal water quality. Testing Tips: This test kit measures pH from 6.0 to 7.6. Certain freshwater fish thrive at a pH above 7.5. Live-bearers, goldfish and African cichlids prefer a pH of 7.5. When keeping fish in this pH range, use Aquarium Pharmaceuticals High Range pH Test Kit. Directions for Testing pH: •Read thoroughly before testing. Do not allow Test Solutions to get into aquarium. •To remove childproof safety cap: With one hand, push red tab left with thumb while unscrewing cap with free hand.

1.Fill a clean test tube with 5 ml of water to be tested (to the line on the tube).

2.Add three drops of Indicator Solution, holding dropper bottle upside down in a completely vertical position to assure uniformity of drops.

3.Cap the test tube and invert tube several times to mix solution. Do not hold finger over open end of tube, as this may affect the test results.

4.Determine the pH reading by matching the color of the solution against those on the pH Color Chart. The tube should be viewed against the white area beside the color chart. Color comparisons are best made in a well-lit area. The closest match indicates the pH of the water sample. Rinse the test tube with clean water after each use. Recommended pH Levels: A pH of 7.0 is ideal when keeping a community aquarium containing a variety of tropical fish.
