I prefer Seachem or Salifert tests. Seachem's a little easier on the wallet.

FWIW Seachem PO4 test can be used on both...it may depend on the manufacturer though.

I like Salifert. Great test kits. I use those almost exclusively though I do have some old AP test kits for things like ammo that I rarely test.

There is a incredibly large number of tests that Salifert produces..
