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.

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.
