A successful coral reef aquarium depends on how well you maintain the water parameters which are the key to a stable coral environment. All of the elements found in natural seawater play a role in providing optimal water parameters, but some are more significant than others. These elements, the foundation of the reef environment, include the three major elements: Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and Carbonates (CO3). All three have a major effect on water chemistry (pH stability, Alkalinity, ionic strength) and on many of the coral’s biological processes (skeleton formation, ions exchange, photosynthesis).
The foundation elements complement each other in the formation of coral skeleton. If not balanced correctly one of the elements will quickly limit healthy coral growth. Using Red Sea test kits will allow you to accurately measure these levels and guide you on your path to reefing success.
The only test kits to own By LBK on 11/30/2015LBK would recommend this product to a friendOver the years I have learned to standardize on Red Sea Kits. They are a top quality product with very accurate results. It is noise that refills are available as well. If you know you are going to stay in the hobby (for me now 40 years) you have to buy this kit. It is the best and the cheapest in the long run...A pretty good combination
Good Stuff By Marc on 5/27/2015Marc would recommend this product to a friendEasy to use and accurate. The included titrator makes it easy to add a drop and mix with one hand. The plastic box keeps the kit well organized. Reagent refill kits are available which makes this very affordable in the long run.
Better built than others By Casey on 3/12/2015Casey would recommend this product to a friendIt's simular to other kits, but the pieces are well thought out and don't seem as cheap as the others.
Great Test Kit By Ryan on 11/7/2014Ryan would recommend this product to a friendRed sea has some of the best test kits available and this one is no exception. Way more accurate than my API. I love that they are refillable too.
Major color shift By Ray on 10/27/2014Ray would recommend this product to a friendNo more squinting at a piece of colored paper. No more "did it change or didn't it?" One drop, one major color shift. And the titrator makes it easy to drop and swirl with one hand. Great kit.
Wow! By jonathan on 8/11/2013jonathan would recommend this product to a friendThis test kit is great. Red sea makes these so simple to use and they are very accurate. I am also a fan of the case it comes with to keep everything organized.
Better Than API Test Kit By Mike on 3/25/2013Mike would recommend this product to a friendMore Accurate test kit than the API drop test kit and it works great when used right but I give it a 4 because I don't think the instructions are specific enough and I just wish chemicals would have a totally different color from purple to like green at the end because I am color blind and have trouble telling the difference from purple to blue. Pink to purple is fine but the end just kills me XD
Very accurate By George on 9/21/2012George would recommend this product to a friendGreat test kit. Very accurate. Get the Alk, Ca, Mg for a better deal if you don't already have them
