Many steps, but works well By PicoMoon on 5/29/2014

I also have the API test kit for pH, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. Compared to this test kit, the API one is a breeze. There are multiple steps involved and all of them need at least 10 seconds of shaking between steps. The colors also take a while to stabilize. The price of the two test kits are about the same. Both are fairly accurate with slight differences in the results. I personally don't mind the steps. Overall, if you don't mind the multiple steps, this is a great test kit.

Always enjoyed using red sea test kits as I found these to be the most accurate. Way better than some of the other kits on the market.

This is the best colormetric test kit on the market. I started out using API test kits, and after running a battery of tests with my new Red Sea kit I will never use another "paper-box" test kit again!! Before using my Red Sea test kit, my API test kit read 0- nitrate, testing with my new test kit right after revealed that my nitrates were 25ppm!!! Do yourself a favor and get this kit if you can't afford buying the Hanna checkers. You won't have to deal with soggy boxes and instructions, and the test vials are built better so you won't have to worry about hazardous chemicals spilling on you or the floor.

Bought this test kit as I’m cycling a new tank, and my previous test regents were way past their prime. I’ve used other Red Sea test kits and found them to be some of the best I’ve used over the years. This is another good kit – with good value as its 5 tests in one kit. Also appreciate the Red Sea test videos that provide a few tips in using their test kits. The color comparison cards are designed well.
