Personally I wouldn’t waste the $12-$18+ on Salifert tests for the basic nh3/no2/no3/ph tests.

I was disappointed with the Salifert no3 test which was even harder to read then my AP test

Don’t get me wrong, I love Salifert tests but I feel it’s really only worth the extra $$$ when it comes to testing things like ca/kh/mg/ect…

Considering a tank that already is cycled should never see any nh3/no2 I think the basic AP test is more then adequate for testing and is easy enough to read if it’s greater then 0.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P

Good point, tecwzrd.

I've never used salifert ammonia and nitrite tests. I use their NO3, Alk, Ca, Silicate and Phosphate tests and am basing my judgement on those only.
