Ammonia alert from seachem is a wonderful product that instantly lets you know if ammonia starts climbing ( important for our oscar tanks )

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000255R5G

I recommend it for every tank.

If you want to double check the product works, simply hold it over an open bottle of windex ( don't dip it in ) If it is working it will instantly turn blue due to the ammonia in windex.

I love these, and have one in every single one of my tanks. It is worth it for the peace of mind and they last a year!

Sounds like a cheesy ad for seachem, but honestly these are a life saver. LOVE them.

This is a must


The ammonia alert is nice but unneeded in a properly cycled and maintained tank

i've tried one of these i thought it would be useful for cycling but the problem is it wasn't very accurate i tested it by putting it in a bucket of water and slowly adding liquid ammonia it stay yellow until i got to 2ppm then it turn darker blue

Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead focus on what to do next
