I use Salifert but I don't know if that is the best one or not.

What about for pH? I struggle with my Salifert kit because I can't tell the exact shade of green. To try and help I bought a Red Sea kit and I struggle there trying to tell the exact color of greyish blue. Both get me in the ball park of 8.00 to 8.4, but I think I need to do a little better.

The consistency is even more important. For instance, say you normally test out at 8.2 and it is consistently 8.2, then you are in good shape. I use Salifert and it isn't exact but I have not had any problems.

I use Tetra Laborett for my pH, KH, ammonia, and nitrite. It's not the best kit, but it is accurate enough for those 4 things.

If you really want to get accurate, get yourself a pH probe. While they are a little costly, you won't have to play the "color game" every time you test.
