Lots of guessing By Marc on 8/13/2015

I've never gotten a result on the nitrate test that matches a color on the card, so the actual measurement is always a guess. I'll give two stars because it can test for both nitrates and nitrites, but if you care about knowing a specific result instead of knowing a broad range, I would not recommend this kit.

All colormetric tests are hard to read but this one seems a little easier then some of the more common ones I have tried. I also feel the range is more appropriate.
Easy to do - hard to read By Paul on 6/4/2015

Got this test kit because of the recommendations. Using this to test Nitrates, I get a color that is not covered by the Red Sea Card, so finding out a true number of nitrates is not possible. It's an estimate. The color matching is very difficult, and is why I steered away from API.
I ordered the pro version, hoping to get a little more accuracy, but I'm not holding my breath as for some reason these companies continue to push out test kits where you have to match a color, that is often times not covered by their color chart.

My tank is relatively newly cycled ( read 2 months set up) I feed a lot and have 6 fish in a 60 gallon. And a handful of spa frags. The nitrates read undetectable every time I ise this test. I do have good nutrient export and no algae so perhaps it truly is zero. Either way the test is easy to use and I like Red Sea products. I say go for it.

Perfect test kit for what I needed. I was starting a new tank and used this kit to monitor the progress of the cycle. Easy to use and the kit included a laminated card for nitrite and nitrate tests, thoughtful. Includes one vial so each test has to be performed separately as well as a syringe.

An all around easy to use and read test kit!!! Its not as accurate as the Nitrate Pro but perfect for tanks you don't need to read less then 5 in notrates perfect for my softie tank....however for my lps/sps tanks I do use the pro versions of red sea's test kits
