    I'm using Salifert and I haven't felt the need to change so I can't really give you a second option...I do however love the D-D Test Kits and I believe they are good...

    To be honest...I think each Reefer has his/her own opinion..so I guess, go with what you like..:thumbup:..if you like the "reviews"..try it...:)

    Salifert is best bang for your buck.

    I also use Salifert for most of my tests, they seem pretty consistent and reliable, although for phosphate I use a Tropic Marin test kit.

    If you really wanna be on the money, get hach, or lamotte. Salifert is pretty ok for most tests though.
