Manual obviously written by someone with english as second language. By Paul on 11/30/2010

Could have been done far more simplified. Not a bad test kit. But I did waste several attempts before realizing I was reading the steps wrong.
For the price, I would have liked to see a larger reagent bottle, but for the accuracy it was worth the purchase.

I had to scrap three tests, was getting frustrated. Then realized the poorly written instructions were confusing me.
There is one step where you are supposed to start over from scratch...but its written in a way where it looks like your supposed to continue with the same water but in a similar fashion to the first part.
They really need to have someone who officially speaks English do their manuals. Its written by someone who has it as a second language and its obvious.
At roughly a dollar per test, but it was a learning experience, so $3 isn't the end of the world.I honestly prefer the Seachem test over this one. But now that I got it, its a 4.3 star test kit IMO. Ill keep using it.

These are good test kits, a little process intensive but as good as these kinds of tests get.

I have always used salifert or API test kits for my aquarium. Not anymore! This was my first elos test kit but will not be the last. The quality of the test kit is superb. The instructions are very detailed and the color change is very apparent. Sometimes have been unsure with others. The Mg test is a little time consuming but worth every minute now that I keep the Mg stable the growth of my LPS has been exceptional!

elos magnesium test kit By Mark on 4/10/2010

this worked for me the first time I used it, maybe, since it said my Ca from a freshly mixed batch of Tropic Marin was 2000, when it generally mixes up to perhaps 1150.
Since then I've tried it three times, and the colors never changed from mud.
This kit is hard to use and in my experience is worthless. Still to Salifert or Seachem.
Easy to use and very reliable. By Logan on 2/18/2010

One of the best test kits I've ever used. This was the first time that I've ever used an elos kit and was more than impressed. The colors really pop out and are very easy to see a change during the test.
