Test kit info needed

Can you all please let me know what test kits you have had good luck with for measuring trates, trites, amonnia? I bought a refractometer and am about to buy a PH meter as well so all I will need is the above (trites, trates and ammonia)...Also any feedback on the "ammonia alert" by Seachem?
I have been using Aquarium Pharm test kit but decided I dont like it. Sort of like Fas-test....
Any feedback is appreciated..
Thanks

IMO, most test kits work well for the items you listed. I do belive that Sailfert and Seachem make the best kits especially if you need to test for items such as Ca/Alk/Mg.

I haven't had any first hand experience with the amonia alert by seachem but I've heard a few customers where I work say it works well.

I think most will agree with Jamal-188. I prefer salifert as well.
