    Default Test Kit for Saltwater


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm looking at a master test on Fish.com. It's the AZOO Tank & Pond Test Kit for Aquariums Item Number: 701052. It says it includes tests for measuring: pH (4.5-9.0), ammonia (0-5 mg/l), nitrite (0-5 mg/l), phosphate (0-5.0 mg/l), nitrate (0-400 mg/l), KH and calcium.

    Is this all we'll need?

    You will want a High range pH test kit, not a wide range. The increments would be too wide to be useful.

    You are looking for a test kit for saltwater, but if this item to which you refer is for ponds it won't do salt.
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    ...yes, you'll need a SW kit...

    ...or buy the tests separately...Sailfert is generally considered to the best bet...
