    I abuse my tubes heavily taking almost no care when I'm throwing them in the sink for cleaning or in the drawer for storage. So far none of them have ever broken on me. Even when I accidentally threw one in the trash and rescued it from the big bin outside 3 days later. Lucky Me!

    I'm also interested in digital monitors because of my nerve damage it would be pointless to do drip testing as I'd end up with just a huge mess

    I've always had great luck with liquid test kits (both SW and FW). You just need to get good quality test kits. My results always matched what the LFS got with there digital testers.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    my problem isn't the accuracy of liquid tests, it's with my ability to hold and squeeze the vial and the chemical bottles. I have a hard time even with holding silverware without dropping them or holding a pen.

    Test tube rack. Let the rack hold the tubes for you.
    If anyone has issues with the bottles, chem lab pipettes (plastic) with suction ends, can provide a larger easier to read tool.
