I love having a test tube holder. Three tanks, six tests- assistant tester is six. It doesn't take much to entirely change the game.

Hey tmaier how do you text you GH and kh with a API test kit and if so how do you test them?

Iv heard of two different ways , the way the instructions says to do one drop at a time shake each time til it's turns from one color to another . 10 drop equals 10dkh for kh . Right ? Well a lfs told me to follow the instructions like it says then the result I get example 5 drop equals 5dkh for kh and divide that by 2 .

For the API test kit however many drops equals how much dKH. You do not divide by 2 not with the API kit anyway.
