I am very happy with my Tropic Marin kits. Esp the Ca and Mg combi test. Awesome instructions and easy to use. And apparently top notch accuracy.

Have to agree with Phat. The lamotte kits are awesome. Sure, they are not cheap, but you get what you pay for....

I am suggesting the alk and Ca kits from La Motte, wrt density, use a refractometer and pH, I would never buy a pH kit, thats what monitors are there for.
Just wish there was a monitor for alk and an AFFORDABLE monitor for CA.

What about that Hagen test thing that tests almost everything we ever need... think it was like R4k if we keep our tanks for the next 20 years it would surly pay off in the end? Anyone got some info on it?

I have been looking for a good ALK test kit and only can get sera. No stock of TM.
I've found that most Alk / hardness test kits give good correlation, as the test is a very simple titration - it's the calcium kits which deviate the most, and where quality counts.

So, just buy the Sera dKH kit if it's the only one available...

(For what it's worth, I've actually used the Tetra dKH test kit for many years with good results, and only changed to Sera or Tropic Marine because I could not source the Tetra kits at a good price any more...)
