Can the test kit be used for both?

Have an api fw test kit, but i am starting a sw tank. Can i use the test kit for both tanks, fw and sw? Is there a different chart i can print out for it? If so, where? Thanks!

Yes you can if you get a new set of cards, I emailed API the same question when I first changed and they sent me a new set, free of charge. The PH test is the only one you'll need to renew.

I just asked API the same question "I have a fresh water test kit and I'm changing to a sw set up, are any of the fw test ok for sw" some guy replied with the answer i gave and asked for my address. New cards arrived 2 days later. Sorted

Thank you cjbaker! Heck, i might even copy and paste this into the email! Lol!

Now, every test works for the saltwater tank?

Edit: also, do you need to use different test tubes for sw/fw tanks? Coul i use the same as long as i clean them really well?
