Quite a bit of overkill for a FW tank IMO. The API master test kit should be sufficient for your tank (Im going off the info in your "My tanks" link) and it's 1/4 the cost.

Yes I can agree that it is a bit overkill for FW only setups, but aside form that would there be ANY benefits to this kit?

How are the colors, over all usability, etc...

I have two of the API master kits and personally don't trust them. Not sure about all the test readings, but the ph levels were just plain wrong. I tested against tap water, and finally got some water from a local fish shop. The API readings were over the top with each test and pretty much off the scale with alkalinity. I purchased the second API test kit thinking my kit had gone bad with age, but the results were the same. Terrific, now I have two kits...

The test I do trust is the Jungle dip strips. I still use the API kit for the ammonia test. Gee, I hope that one is reading right. Anyway, just my experience and a heads up.
