Test kits

What is the best test kit to get? I had some API or maybe they were tetra.. lol anyway they were pretty could but I would like to get one of the master kits and am wondering which is best. I know my pet store has the API master freshwater kit. Is it any good?

I use API master and I like it a lot. Very accurate and easy to read.

I use API liquid test kits for everything except pH. I used to use their pH one but my lfs recently recommended a broad spectrum pH kit that tests for 3.0-10.0. I can't remember the brand rn of that one. If you want a master kit you should def get the API one.

I use the API Master and also the API Gh and Kh test kit. Together I feel confident of my water specs.

I also use the API Master Test Kit. I buy that and most of my other supplies on line from Drs Foster and Smith. It's a lot cheaper than buying from the lfs.
