Great kit to use for initial cycle! Easy to read and use with the color charts. Only downside is the nitrite and ammonia tests don't read high range

Having so many test kit manufacturers is really hard to decide which one to go with, this one is really easy to use, very detailed instructions and better color guidance than other kits.
Gave 4 starts just because its a little bit pricey

I've been keeping saltwater and reef tanks for 18 years and then n those years I've used many different brands of test kits and these by far have been the BEST in my opinion and most accurate. They've also improved a lot in the last few years.

started off with an API test kit, wasn't the greatest at giving accurate colors so before putting fish in my tank I bought this and a reef foundations test kit and results are very easy to read. case could be a little better built so that all the bottles actually fit but that doesn't effect the function of the test kit itself

Great test kit. Easy to follow instructions, but takes a little bit of time to be able to read the colors of the test. But I have seen a lot harder test to be able to read.

Having no experience with test kits, I bought this kit due to the reputation of the manufacturer. The test seem easy enough to perform, but there does seem to be some room for interpretation of the colors provided. Sometimes hard to match colors and in those cases, you are supposed to interpolate. Not sure how significant that is in the big picture, but otherwise, nice test kit. The case is nice, but not all bottles fit into a space. Feels a little cheap for how much Red Sea has invested in the science.

Easy to follow instruction and price point is excellent. Added bonus is that Red Sea offers how to videos on their website. Making it even harder to get it wrong.

Easy to read and I like that you can buy refills rather than a whole new kit

Let's start with a basic biological fact. Compared to women, all men are colorblind. If you are color blind compared to other men, test kits are a challenge. I had been using salifert, and just wanted to beat my head on the table. While still a challenge, the Red Sea system of placing the vial on the card and comparing has gotten me far better results.
Works as a Starter Kit By Vu on 12/21/2014

This kit has more steps than others. I purchased for the reputation of Red Sea and knowing its accurate enough for starting a new tank. My two gripes are that the kit is a little more complicated to use compared to others. Also even though the dtorage box is made to nicely hold the contents, the KH bottle doesn't actually fit in any slot.
Very good test kit. By DivingTheWorld on 12/19/2014
DivingTheWorld would recommend this product to a friend
This is a very easy to use test kit and I find it accurate. The Ammonia, Nitrate and Nitrite tests are good although I find the Nitrite a little hard to read the color match. The pH test is also a little hard to match the color. The Alkalinity test works, but it is a very rough test result (1 dKH intervals). I am being very demanding though because I use other forms of testing which have higher precision. For the money, can beat the ease of use and accuracy. I would recommend and buy again myself.

Of course many have their preferred test kits. Mine is Red Sea and I found the Marine Care Test Kit cheapest here compared to all other reputable websites.

A Little More Work but Worth It By Powder Kat on 8/17/2014

Been using the API kits forever but feel the results are inconsistent. I was looking for another affordable kit and landed on watching the BRS video from MACNA convention and listened to the Red Sea rep. Thought I'd give it a try. There is more mixing and it takes a little longer, but I really feel the results are more accurate. The directions are very clear so it really is no problem. A good deal and worth it.
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.
Get This Test Kit By Daniel on 5/4/2014

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.
