I am fairly new to the saltwater aquarium scene. I have been in it for almost a year and i am now just at the point where i want to get going on a reef aquarium. (I have fish already and they are reef safe. Tank is fully cycled and i have not had 1 die off). Its a 45 Gallon Tall tank with 90 LBS of fuji live rock and approx 20lbs of live sand.
I am looking for a broad spectrium test kit that will test most (if not all) items i need to keep an eye on.
Currently i am using a 5 in 1 test strip and i am not really impressed with them. I dont feel they are 100% accurate and i want to make sure i am percise with the amount i will be spending on corals.
The 5-1 i am using tests Nitrates, Nitrites, Chlorine (which doesnt apply as i use R/O water), Alk
The issue is they are hard to read as some colours seem to look like others and they do not test Amonia and Calcium.
Does anyone have any suggestions. I am located in the Greater Toronto Area.
Thanks for your help in advance.
