About this deal

Please ensure you do not use the item or dispose of any packaging if you wish for us to replace or refund any items which arrive damaged or otherwise not as expected. If you’re doing some feet regimen like EI tast kit can be thrown away, because you have to maintain your water changes anyway for the regimen to work. Simply run the water, open the test tube gently (do not twist the cap), and allow the water to dilute and rinse the contents out of the test tube. Again I am not chasing a specific parameter value like pH, KH, GH or Nitrates other than make my water "safe for fishies". The FRESHWATER MASTER TEST KIT is highly accurate and economical, and includes a computer calibrated, laminated colour card, 4 test tubes and holding tray.

Could it be that they are attempting to prevent newbies from repeating the experience of wasting these precious resources? Each kit includes detailed information on how to interpret the test results and correct unsafe water conditions. I fully agree accuracy might not be up to or even close laboratory standards, but I honestly feel it let me know that I shouldn't put fish in that water yet. Simply dip a strip into your water and swirl two times, then remove the strip and hold flat to evaluate color changes. OK sounds good thanks for the advice, definitely with marine I was testing at least once a week so will not be sorry to see that go, will grab a basic test kit as it will be a new set up to establish when the tank is cycled.What I have gathered is these things are wildly inaccurate, the color-metric scale is hard to read for most of us, but I did test my water for nitrites back to back to back to back and even swapped the test tubes to ensure it wasnt some kind of contamination. I've been told the most incredible (and totally clueless) things by a number of LFS, on the widest range of subjects, including water chemistry.

I didn't start from a position that testing wasn't important, quite the opposite, it was the difficulties with getting consistent results in soft and hard water etc. The kit includes computer analysed laminated colour cards, instruction booklet, 4 test tubes, a holding tray for testing bottles and a test tube rack. The API Freshwater Mastser Test Kit will allow over 800 tests of the 5 key parameters to test in your aquarium. To stay healthy and thrive, fish need properly balanced levels of ammonia, pH, high range pH, nitrite and nitrate. This will make sure that the reagents don’t cause anything to stick to the sides of the test tube, which could cause staining over time.How is an aquarist supposed to know how much ammonia or nitrite, for example, is in the aquarium water?

It is the phycological impact of the testing process that traps individual into a life of endless testing. Within the kit, you will receive four glass test tubes, 800 tests, 7 test solutions, a colour card and a set of simple instructions. While it is important to shake the indicated reagent bottles very vigorously, you should be gentler when shaking the test tubes during testing. I've kept fish off and on since the 1970s and I'm still not very good at it, I'm better with plants, but I'll never have the radiant tanks that many other members have. Whichever test strip you use, from the ammonia test to the pH test, you can be confident that the results you are getting are highly accurate.

Blagdon, Hozelock Cyprio, Cloverleaf, Fish Mate, Nishikoi, Pisces, Tetra, NT Laboratories, Interpet, TMC, Oase and many more. The API freshwater master test kit is a complete set of chemical tests to accurately measure the key chemical indicators within your freshwater aquarium. I don't think we are anti-testing, or opposed to test kits, or to people using them if they feel happier to. What test kit lovers always fail to understand in this (seemingly) eternal argument is that it is not the test kit, per se, that is disposed.
