Test kit

I Have a 55g reef aquarium with a few fish and invertebrates. I was wondering what kind of test kits do you guys recommend? And also what type of "glue" do you guys recommend to glue my corals onto my LR.

Use one of the API master test kits. And I see everyone reccomend using gel super glue.

Yes I agree I got the API test kit for around 23$ and the glue I saw for about 15$ if that helps you on prices .

I agree, API liquid saltwater test kit for around $20 has everything you need test wise pretty much. At least for now.

I use coral gel glue and regular gel glue for my corals, nothing fancy.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
