Calcium test kits

What do you guys recommend for easy calcium testing in a reef tank? I wanna do everything and get everything right if I can afford it. Thanks for the help.

Jeff

I have one Red Sea and one salifert. Both are good imo. The Red Sea is much easier to use and has shown equal measurements when compared to salifert. Though I do facor Salifert kits..
