Affordable kit with a kink

Pros: Cheap, cover basic testing needs

Cons: Part 2 of Ca testing is not enough

This kit covers the basic nutrient testings needed at a very low cost. It would be perfect if it wasn't for the calcium testing. API should really consider reformulate their solution for calcium testing or increase the volume for the 2nd bottle. You only use 10 drops of bottle #1 but to read the result you would ended up using 25 or more drops of the 2nd bottle, especially in a mixed reef or sps only tank where calcium is always high. I always ran out of the 2nd bottle and have to buy the calcium test kit separately just for the 2nd bottle. If API is trying to keep all bottles at the same size so to fit the container, 2nd bottle should have higher concentration so to read results using fewer drops. I mainly use this kit for NO3, PO4 and kH, but might have to consider a different test for Ca since it's difficult to find API Ca test kit by itself. The cost of the Ca test alone is almost 1/2 this entire master kit and you will still run out of the 2nd bottle sooner.

Good enough tests

Pros: Calcium test is the best in the business

Cons: Resolution could be higher

The calcium test I'd the best on the market hands down!
The others are good but the resolution is not great.

API wil keep you within a range but it's not very accurate because of the low resolution.
That being said, its good enough to keep a successful reef.

Good starting test kit

Pros: Consistent, cheap

Cons: Difficult to read, leaking test vials

This is a good test kit to start with when first getting into reef tanks. The instructions are easy to follow and reagents seem uniform in drop size. I can’t verify the accuracy but they do seem consistent. My biggest concerns are the difficulty in determining color variation of the nitrate and phosphate tests, and that the test vitals leak very easily when shaking the test.

Testing, Testing 1 2 3

Pros: Good Price, Easy testing

Cons: Not as quick as electronic testing, nasty chemicals

This comes with the main things you need. Alkalinity, Calcium, Phosphate and Nitrate Tests. Great price and makes for fairly quick and easy testing
