What tests do you use?

As far as brand I know API is pretty low on the list. What test kits do you guys use for calcium, mag, alk, etc...

I like Salifert or Red Sea. I have several titration tests for FW and SW from each.

I also like the Hanna PO4 checker. Can't beat it if you are planning a reef setup and want to know how much PO4 is actually in the water. The PO4 titration kit is just too hard to read accurately at the low levels you are trying to detect.

I also use a Milwaukee SMS122 for a pH meter, so I can constantly monitor the pH, as I am lazy and don't like to do testing any more than I have too .
