Just be aware that the water line on the supplied tubes is generally not actually at the required 5ml mark. You should get a graduated dropper from the pharmacy to insure you are testing the correct amount of sample water.

That's one of the reasons I use the Salifert kits for Ca, NO3, Alk, Mg. They come with graduated syringes and have a sharp color change to let you know what your reading is.

The only place I can think of for a set of cards is a new API Saltwater Master Test Kit, so not much help there. I have had numerous bad experiences with tetra products and I now stray from them, but you can get it if you want, just read reviews all over the internet and see what people say.

Any questions? Feel free to PM me.
