The Neutro Drop Checker is designed to indicate the amount of CO₂ in your planted aquarium. In order to understand the CO₂ level, a colour change occurs within the drop checker.

Drop checkers are the only way to monitor CO₂ levels on a daily basis with high accuracy. This drop checker requires Neutro Bromo Blue solution to work and needs to be purchased separately.

WIthout a drop checker you are guessing your CO₂ levels. This means plant growth will be sporadic and undesirable and this is why drop checkers play an important role when injecting CO2 into a planted aquarium. Drop checkers are very easy to use and start monitoring the levels immediately but always have a 2hour lag.

Directions to use:

  1. Turn drop checker upside down and fill drop checker bulb section 3/4 full of bromo blue solution (sold separately). Use a pipette if possible.
  2. Turn drop checker right way up (without spilling contents) and place inside aquarium so that it is visible. In terms of location, aim for 2-3" off the bottom.
  3. Within 2 hours drop checker will display a reading according to your CO₂ levels. Green is the ideal colour, yellow is too much CO₂ and blue is too little (adjust CO₂ output accordingly).

Key Point:

Remember your drop checker shows your CO₂ levels 2 hours in the past (essentially a delayed reading). Any changes you make need to be done slowly. In the morning you want your drop checker to be showing a green colour so it's quite normal to have CO2 coming on about 1 hour before the lights come on. If you are new to CO₂, then carefully monitor your fish in the morning to check they are OK. They should be fine but always check until you become familiar with CO₂ levels and how your livestock are.

Final thought. The big question you have to ask yourself if you don't know your CO₂ levels, how do you know if you have enough? 95% of all algae related problems are linked to insufficient CO₂.

Have only just put in the drop checker so far so good. The information was on the bottle so was easy to do.

Seems to do the job. The liquid is very dark so it can be difficult to tell blue from green.

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...
