Testing aquarium water parameters on a regular basis provides important information regarding the "health" of your aquarium water. Healthy aquarium water means healthy aquarium inhabitants.

Download the FREE Tetra Water Care smart phone app at your favorite app store! The Tetra Aquarium app, combined with Tetra EasyStripsTM 6-in-1 Aquarium Test Strips, makes testing for six important water quality levels – nitrate, nitrite, hardness, chlorine, alkalinity, and pH – quick and easy!

Just dip our test strips directly into your aquarium and compare to the color chart in the Tetra Water Care App. If any of your water quality levels are off, the app will alert you and recommend an easy-to-follow treatment plan. No guesswork or calculating required.
