Hmm...aren't Instant Ocean products for saltwater? I'm just dealing with a very small freshwater tank here, 5.5 gallons, nothing complicated.
I'm surprised about the API comment, I though most people here like those test kits.
The Salifert looks good, but it says it only starts measuring at .5ppm, unless you get the pro kit, which is even more expensive.
I've been reading about the red sea tests, and apparently they are easy to read but people feel the results aren't consistently accurate.
Just trying to cycle my little tank and use a test that's accurate and easy to read...and I'm on a pretty tight budget.
Do others feel the same way as tamara&steven about the API tests?
10 gallon:1 Betta, 4 otos, 3 Rasbora hengeli
5.5 gallon: 2 otos and 3 Emerald Eye Rasboras
