    Cascade Drop Checker

    A British Hand-made Glass CO2 Indicator, that sits outside of your tank! Maximum glass thickness between 9 - 10 mm, these are perfect on a rimless aquarium, hand-made in the UK by a specialist with over 40 years of glass making experience. Please remember these are hand-made and sometimes variations occur in the sizing, if you need a specific size, please contact us before ordering to make sure we have one that will fit your aquarium.

    What it does: Maintaining the appropriate CO2 level is critical in a planted aquarium. Too much CO2 may harm your fish, whereas too little CO2 decreases plant growth and allows algae to take over. The handmade CO2 Glass Drop Checker makes it easy for you to know the approximate CO2 level inside the aquarium by comparing the colour of the reagent. When the drop checker is placed correctly in the aquarium, the colour of the indicator solution will turn lime green when the optimal concentration of 30 ppm of CO2 is achieved in the aquarium water. A yellow or blue colour compared against a pH indicator colour chart indicates too much or too little CO2 in the water, respectively.

    • BLUE=Low CO2 levels -> Increase rate of CO2

    • GREEN=Proper CO2 levels -> No action required

    • YELLOW=High CO2 levels -> Decrease rate of CO2

    This set contains: Cascade Drop Checker.

    Dimensions: Height: 70mm Overall Width:45mm

    What else you need to know: Hand made with high quality glass, the CO2 Indicator can be cleaned easily using bleaching agent. Rinse glassware thoroughly before putting it back to use. 4dkh water or pH reagent not supplied.

    Please Note: No Cascade Glassware comes with a Retail box, all glassware is sent in protective foam only and an outer box, we believe this is more than enough protection for the glassware, we are also saving on weight and cost to you, the customer. We find that most people either throw away the box or loss it. As we actively try and reduce the carbon footprint our small company makes, we thought that this would make a small difference; also a % of each sale of the Glassware will go to conservation projects in the UK.
