I put stars next to the ones we reefaholics highly reccomend. I only use salifert but API and tons of other cheaper brands work as well. The first 4 are not required because you don't have that many corals yet but once have more your gonna likely need them. This probably sounds complicated but do a lot of research on reef aquarium chemistry. I'm only 14 and I no longer find this part of the hobby confusing but I did 3 years ago.
Thank you for this great list! I'm going to have to do some research and work on getting some new tests.
I want everything to be taken care of perfectly.
As I said, I am away from my fish tanks for a week, which really sucks, but I got a really exciting surprise when I got home. Please please please check out my new thread! I need y'alls help! I just started a new thread for the subject.
Please help me decide!! :)
