    Hey all, just a quick question.

    You get those testing strip stickers thingies :m12: at lfs. You know, you stick it on the inside of your tank and it shows nitrite, ammonia, ph, etc. The readings is in a circle (not sure how they work yet, didn't read up on them). :m85:

    How accurate are those testing stickers, and how many of you are using them successfully? I just don't want to fork out a couple of 100 bucks for the tests thats not included in my Red Sea test kit, until I know they work.

    Thanx guys and gals, here's a beer for your effort :peroni:

    Thanks @dallasg - that's what I also thought. Would rather then stick to my Red Sea kits.
