Nor do I pretend to be so these make my life simple. At one time I did have kits with all the chemicals, glass tubes and cards but I didn't keep up with testing because it was time consuming. I find the test strips so much easier and accurate and I do my water changes/checks more often now.
I don't have anything to compare these to because I've never used any of them before. Seemed to work fine, pay attention to directions on box, the colored strip you compare to is wrong on the box (and it's says so), you want to use the chart on the bottle.
I love the ease in ordering & LOVE the fast shipping
These work instantly and they are super easy to read with the chart made right into the strip tube they come in they really help us keep the fish tank and the fish healthy and happy definitely will buy these again when these ones are gone we are truly happy couldn't have asked for anything better they are a great product
easy to use and can really help save your fish, showing levels rising before you see the fish stressing
Test strips are not as accurate as the test tubes, but I have been setting up a new tank and I do not always have time to use the long method. These get the highest rating for accuracy on a Betta fish forum I follow. I love how easy these are to use!
I realized two weeks into my new tank i hadn't bought an ammonia test kit, so getting these through chewy definitely helped keep my betta safe. They do the job they're supposed to, but my only real complaint with them is that they turn blue /really/ fast. If you don't have adequate light right there by the aquarium and you have to go into another room to check the color on the strip, it'll be blue-green by the time you get there.
Arrived in a timely manner, easy to read with clear directions, works well and does what it's supposed to.
easy test strips for a great price..... no cleaning up after just toss the paper strip
