About Aquarium Phosphate Testing
Phosphate testing is a significant part of maintaining the balance of your aquarium. Phosphate is found in tap water, fish excrement, and organic material, such as fish food leftovers. Phosphate feeds algae, so excessive amounts of it can lead to a too-green tank. At times, the sight of all that algae doesn’t identify that the cause is actually from phosphate.
In a saltwater aquarium, the coral will be affected, as phosphate inhibits calcification. The coral thus stops growing and can even lose its vibrant colour.
