    Hi guys, as far as i know, the only parameters we can read digitally are:
    pH
    Redox
    Temperature
    Salinity

    If i remember correctly the expensive controllers like the Hanna(is the hanna?) can read PO4 etc digitally, but with limited knowledge and resources the top 4 are what i could use. I understand the relationships between some of the parameters, like Ca and alk for one, when alk is high Ca is low.. So using the 4 things i can test for digitally is there a way i could estimate some of the other parameter levels? Or would i still be stuck doing manual tests?

    PO4 can only be tested electronically by means of a "test process", AFAIK there aren't any probes that can just provide real time data.

    If you check the prices on the probes, you'll be happy doing it with a test kit, they are generally very expensive.
