Optimum water values

 

Optimum saltwater

Many quality parameters of water can be measured. Many of these should be measured regularly (e.g. temperature, density) others only if there are problems (e.g. nitrite, nitrate and phosphate) There are simple test kits available for this from specialist retailers.

If you have set up your Nano Marinus Cube according to the Dennerle Easy Care System and are maintaining it, carrying out regular water changes and the animals look good and are growing well, experience has shown that many water-chemical factors do not need to be measured.

 

Individual water values only need to be measured accurately if the corals look unhealthy, are growing poorly or even dying.
