test kits

What is the best test kit for nitrate? I bought a second brand because I thought my first was off. The original kit read 40, the new one reads 10.

I use AP test kits. They seem to be ok. What brand do you have?

My Seachem kit reads 50+ and my Salifert kit reads between 10-25. I bought a new Seachem to check and it also reads 50+. I wish there was a digital tester for trAtes.

The two I've got are SeaTest (reads 10) and Aquarium Pharmaceuticals (reads 40). What is the most accurate one out there?
