This pH kit allows you to accurately measure and adjust the pH levels in your freshwater aquarium or pond

  • The comprehensive kit is designed to provide convenience and reliability, ensuring optimal water conditions for tropical fish and goldfish
  • Allows you to conduct over 300 tests, giving you a thorough understanding of the pH levels in your aquarium
  • Maintaining the appropriate pH balance is crucial for the health, colouration, and breeding potential of your fish
  • The kit includes Bromothymol Blue to test the pH level, along with pH Up and pH Down powders to adjust the pH level to your desired range
  • Different fish species have varying pH preferences, and this kit allows you to create an environment that suits the needs of your specific fish
  • To make pH testing easy, the kit provides a colour chart on the box
  • Simply compare the colour of the water sample to the chart to determine the pH level
  • A green colour on the chart indicates a more neutral pH, which is generally recommended for a diverse range of fish species
  • Yellow represents an acidic pH, while blue signifies an alkaline pH
  • The intensity of these colours indicates the distance from neutral
  • Should you need to correct acid water, the 'pH Up' powder should be used
  • On the other hand, if you need to correct alkaline water, the 'pH Down' powder is recommended
  • These powders allow for precise adjustments to achieve the desired pH level in your aquarium
  • Suitable for tropical fish and goldfish in freshwater aquariums and ponds
  • Australian made


  • Please note that it is important to follow the instructions provided with the kit and consult with a veterinarian or aquatic specialist for specific guidance on adjusting the pH level based on the requirements of your fish species
  • Regular testing and monitoring of water parameters are essential for maintaining optimal conditions for your freshwater aquarium or pond

The Blue Planet pH Complete Freshwater Kit (this kit) offers a more extensive testing and adjusting experience with additional components such as pH Up and pH Down powders, test tubes, caps, and a complete colour chart. The Blue Planet pH Freshwater Kit (available for separate purchase) provides a simpler version of the kit, focusing on the basic tools needed for pH testing.

Directions For Use

  • Rinse the test tube in aquarium water first, ideally the water about to be tested
  • Half-fill the test tube and add two drops of the solution
  • Add the cap; do not use your finger to cover as this may alter the reading
  • Shake and allow a minute to view the colour
  • Compare this to the chart on the box
  • Adjust the pH as required by following the directions below

Adjusting pH

  • Using the powders always starts with 1 tablespoon per 30L
  • Allow about 1 hour then re-test and repeat as needed
  • Do not alter quickly as fish may be shocked by the change
  • It is better to alter slowly over a few days where possible
  • If no fish are present adjust as quickly as needed


  • Avoid extreme acid or extremely alkaline aquarium water
  • We recommend regular monthly water changes of approximately 25% of tank capacity to regulate pH and avoid the accumulation of toxic waste by-products
