Ok so I need a good test kit. That or a few. I need to be able to test all major reef parameters. My major goal is to succeed in SPS.

Thanks
Dave

Hanna checkers test various water parameters. They are expensive. Other brands are relaible and much cheaper. I would only do Hanna for phosphate though.

test kits

Anyone know where I can go to get a all in one test kit( if such a thing exists), I mean a package with each individual test inside. Or a good place to go to get each individual kit at a reasonable price.

Reasonable priced and salt water tanks is opposites haha, if your looking for cheap and fairly accurate I'd go with API, they are the cheapest you can get and within reason in accuracy

What ever kit you go with use a trusted lfs to validate your test results. Personally I used 2 stores to validate my results to be sure. API for the basics is fine, after a cycle you don't really need to check NH3 or NO2 often, only pH and NO3. I went with the Hanna PO4 - works great. For Mg, Ca and KH I went with the red sea reef foundation. A little pricey but easy to use.
