    While these dip sticks come in handy, it’s important to use a fresh water master test kit to get PRECISE values and read your water for ammonia (since these DON’T test for ammonia). These are handy for in-between precise water tests, but not as the only source of water testing, because they aren’t incredibly While these dip sticks come in handy, it’s important to use a fresh water master test kit to get PRECISE values and read your water for ammonia (since these DON’T test for ammonia).

    Unfortunately inaccurate

    By MelC on Feb 2, 2021

    I got these to easily test my kh and gh as well as a quick check on my nitrates so I don’t have to pull out my liquid test kit every week... well in a side by side comparison of the pH and nitrate, the strips were way lower on both tests than my liquid tests. Showing the nitrate as an example.

    Great item

    I have a 28 gallon aquarium and use the strips atleast twice per month to check the water. The strips work very well and are super easy to read.

    They did not test for everything you need to know about your fish tank and being the first time fish owner I had no idea will not buy again

    Aquarium test strips

    The instructions aren't really clear, and the sheet doesn't really explain what the paremeter readings mean, I'll probably just end up taking a water sample to the local pet store and hope they acctually know what they are doing.

    It’s alright

    By on

    The product is good but it says instructions and there is none I don’t like that you have to check each reading then go online to see if the water is ok if you know the numbers it’s good

    Important tool for fish health

    By on

    We use these test strips to monitor the water in the tank that hokds our 15 year old goldfish. Would give it 5 stars if it also measured amonia but still very helpful in keeping it healthy.

    Test Strips Used Often

    By on

    I use these test strips at least once a week for checking nitrate levels. I have found these test strips aren’t what I’m looking for in terms of determining precise pH in my 60 gal (use the liquid test kit), but it was helpful in my hospital tank. These strips are good for general water parameter checks.
