I love these test strips for the simple reason that they measure perhaps the most deadly element in the hobby in a simple way. My only critique (and this is on me, not on API or Chewy,) is that I have a harder time reading these now than I did, say, 10 years ago. My eyesight being what it is, the subtleness of the distinctions in the color chart sometimes give me a tough time but usually just when trying to tell the difference between a straight 0 and somewhere between 0.5. I am confident that if there was a serious ammonia issue (which anything over 0 needs attention) the color would be telling as the green gets more intense. Lots of light and a white backdrop help with reading the results as well.
Strips have a weird setup of pad and plastic cover- couldn't get it to test right- after dipping it in water would either remain yellow on inside, blue around the edges, just yellow, or if I squeezed it, would turn blue. Led to a false sense of security when in reality was the cause of fish dying!
Fairly easy and accurate. I have 2 tanks and they read differently, so it's not like they're duds.
Good product, fast, and easy to use -accurate reading
