So, that's my question. Is there a better nitrate test kit out there that's affordable?
I know Seachem has a nitrate test kit with no bottle shaking, but their test kits are expensive. Even if you find a kit online that's cheaper it's still not cheap considering it's just to test one parameter.
Do you have a nitrate problem or are you just looking for an alt to the API test kits?
