Today on BRStv follow along during Week 34 of 52 Weeks of Reefing as we dig into one of a Reefer's most useful tools; test kits!

This week we are going to talk about what to test for, frequency, and the kit or method we like best for each. I think there are more or less three groups of testing:

Critical to life-support:
-Salinity
-Temperature
-Calcium
-Alkalinity
-pH

Important but requires infrequent testing:
-Nitrate
-Phosphate
-Magnesium
-Chlorine
-Chloramines
-Ammonia

Nice to know:
-Iodine
-Strontium
-Potassium
-Iron
and more!

This week's poll we are asking you how often you think reefers should test their calcium and alkalinity.
