    Welcome to the site

    You are in for an interesting adventure. How big is your tank, what equipment do you have ?

    just a standard, very basic setup, 55g, canister filter, 2 powerheads, hang-on protein skimmer, and still deciding on getting a uv filter ?

    Hello Singularity! A very WARM welcome to MASA! Hope you enjoy your stay with us.
    Please tell me something else too:
    - what substrate are you using in your tank?
    - Do you have a sump?
    - What lighting do you have?
    - what do you have INSIDE your canister filter?
    - How many litres of water do you have in total?
    - How many litres is your skimmer rated for?
    - Do you have live rock? And how much?

    Sorry about the 100 questions. We here at MASA feel it is best to know as much as possible about our member's tanks, before we can make a really knowledgeable suggestion/s.

    I have only used their Calcuim tester, and am quite happy with it. Compared it to the Tropic Marin equivalent and very similar results.

    Don't know about there other products
