I love api test kits and I bought this one for my reef tank. Didnt realize it didn’t test for magnesium and I’m a little disappointed because now I must purchase a separate test.
Did the job! Fish are happy and healthy. Check it often and hasn’t let me down
So I have my water tested by the LFS pretty much every time I go there, and unless I get the not so great person (1/8) I ask them to test with the stick and the drops. Every time I've done this, their readings are completely consistent with mine using this test kit. And I haven't noticed any problems that might indicate that the test kit AND their two are not working. So I plan to reorder this when I'm out. I will say that the kH and the calcium hardness are finicky, which means that you have to shake the vials after EVERY DROP! Do NOT get lazy and do a few drops at a time or you'll be out a test.
My local petstore does not sell the reef kit, and charges about 15 more for their master test kits. This arrived quick and was a great price compared to other retailers. I still need some tests that this did not come with, such as magnesium and alkalinity, but at least I have most tests now.
I recommend this item to anyone that is in need to check on their aquarium water :) I was worried that my water levels were not right and item wasn't going to get here in time BUT it was a very fast delivery!
I use this product and its fantastic. It is missing yo test out magnesium. And thats a big part of growing ur corals nice and healthy.
I bought both test kits because we have fish and soft coral.
Test kit works great and easy to follow. I checked my water before going to aquarium store and my results matched theirs
Found the tests easy to use and helps keep track of the water conditions in my marine tank, it looked like a chemistry set when I first received it but it wasn't difficult at all, even for the beginners.
Not as accurate as a Salifert test kit but it will get you in the ballpark.
