I like Salifert. A little more expensive than some others, but it's very accurate and very easy to read.

There are going to be alot of responces of different test kits to use- but I use Sera- I think it's fairly accurate and also easy to use...

I have a "Tropic Marin Calcium test kit"...I believe it was about $15 on Amazon...I find it extremely hard to read...it has about 6 steps (fill a vial w/water, put "part A" in, put lid on and shake, put in "Part b", shake, put in "part C", do some math and get answer...I suppose once you know what your doing you could maybe do it in less than 5 min...but the results are not obviouse at all...is this a normal procedure etc...
