Test kits???

I currently use the Red Sea brand of test kit for PH/Alk/Amm/Ni/Na and it has just reached it expiry date. I'm wondering what test kits are good and reliable and if it's not too much to ask easy to use. I've heard seachem's are accurate but a little harder to use.

Any ideas?

API liquid kits are the way to go. I use a mix of API and salifert. You can get the API kit for about 20$ and it includes everything you need almost.

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