Red Sea or API? Everything I read indicates Red Sea is more accurate - but how much accuracy is really needed? Salifert seems popular as well - but way too expensive. And with a reef tank do you really test for ammonia/nitrate after cycle? With my FW
tank I never test. As long as I do my water changes all is well. If I don't have to test ammonia or nitrite regularly, I was thinking of just getting the red sea reef pro kit and maybe a nitrate and phosphate test. If I have to get ammonia/nitrite/nitrate then red sea starts to really get into the stratosphere on cost in relation to API.
