    Stone Aquatics is teaming up with a new company called ICP-Anaylsis to do full water panel analysis. We will be offering testing as low as $15 per sample. This is coming in January so stay tuned.

    When you say as low as $15 what does that include versus the higher prices?

    We will test for the following, but it is not limited to just the mentioned ones:
    Lithium, Silcone, Berilium, Boron, Sodium, Magnesium, Aluminum, Calcium, Potassium, Sulfur, Titanium, Vandium, Chromium, Manganese, Arsenic, Iron, Cobalt, Selinium, Iodine, Strontium, Tin, Lead, Mercury, Tungston, Barium.

    We are capable of testing about 65 elements on the period chart.

    Turn around time will vary. If you walk in we can do it while you wait. If you mail the sample in about 1 business day. Each analysis takes about 3 minutes.

    We will also provide ICP analysis of ocean water from many areas where coral is taken from so you can compare your water to the natural environment.

    The higher prices that Triton charges is because that is their business model and they are in Europe. Our testing will be done in Denver with a new state of the art machine and we will be offering this testing nation wide.

    The goal of ICP analysis is to fine tune color and growth of your corals by mimicking the natural water. To do this it is you will want to test once a week for 4 weeks to get a base line of your water and the coral uptake of trace elements and then monitor every two weeks.

    Totally stoked for this. In depth testing at a fraction of the cost...awesome.
    Any thoughts on a multi purchase card for a slight discount, for example a 12 pack.
