Water Testing Kits

I prefer Prime to condition aquarium water and wanted to know which water test kit will read accurately . I used API Freshwater Test kit until LFS stated the readings were incorrect while using Seachem's Prime. My mumba cichlids have survived and reproduced but need to provide them with optimum water quality with the proper testing kit. Also would like to know what kind of glue is safe to use for aquarium decorations. Thanks to all in advance !

I use the same conditioner and test kit. Never had a problem. As a matter of fact most LFS test with strips and are inaccurate. I only trust my testing.

Glad to hear that someone else uses the same method without any problems. LFS uses the API liquid test kit and recommended API products. LFS stated that each company uses a different base chemical in their test kits. Does anyone use Seachem's Master mini test kit or Nutrafin ?
