Instructions 1.Add (using the 2 ml syringe) 2 ml of aquarium water in the test vial. For a lower resolution and more tests per kit add 1 ml instead of 2 ml. 2.Add 1 level scoop of Ca-1 (low resolution approximately half a scoop). Do not mix yet. 3.Add 8 drops of Ca-2. The low resolution mode requires 4 drops. Swirl (do NOT shake) for 10 seconds. 4. Put the plastic tip firmly on the 1 ml syringe. Draw up the Ca-3 reagent (ensure that the tip of the plastic tip is constantly submersed in the reagent) until the lower end of the black part of the piston is exactly at the 1.00 ml mark. There will be some air present just below the piston. This is the air which was present between the end of the plastic tip and the piston. This will not influence the test result. 5. Add drop wise with the 1 ml syringe the Ca-3 reagent to the water in the test tube. Swirl after each drop a second or two. Continue with this until the water changes from pink-red to a clear blue color. 6. Hold the syringe with the tip facing upward and read the position of the, now upper end, of the black part of the piston. The syringe has graduations of 0.01 ml. Read the calcium value from the table (included with the test kit) or calculate as follows: ppm Ca = reading from step 6 x 500. If you have chosen the lower resolution multiply the calculated result by 2.
