Calcium Test kit

I just recieved a Seachem Reef status calcium test kit in a lot of stuff I bought...

I don't really know too much about salt stuff, and was wondering if Ca indicator reagent #2 was supposed to be gooey??

I am assuming it isn't, But if it is...I guess it would still be good...

If anyone has experience with this kit please let me know.

TIA

-Steve

I believe I have one at home. I haven't tested Ca in a while, so I can't remember. Are you doing a reef set up?

Reagent #2 should be a crystalline powder that is added with a small scoop. If it is gooey, then it has been contaminated with something. Don't use it, either contact the vendor that sold it to you for a replacement or contact Seachem, probably in that order. Good luck.

Thanks for the information, It was thrown in with a lot of other stuff I bought...

I was planning on selling it, I wonder If seachem would sell just that one reagent...

The rest of the kit looks good though..
