Yes, the colors will be a little different though. But stillthe same concept. If you get any green in the ammonia one, or any color other than blue for nitrites and the reds are pretty much the same for nitrates. You will use the high ph tester though for sw.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I use API for ammonia/ph/nitrate/nitrite and this site helped me with clarification:

Downloads; Pump and filter Instructions, Test Kit charts
