Re: [APD] Nitrate Test Kit Advice
I had much better luck with the SeaChem tests than any of
the other inexpensive kits. I find I have a lot of trouble
with the color tests, but that isn't necessarily a fault of
the tests ;-)
Lamotte phosphate is not easier to read - you have to get
the lighting just right. It does allow very good accuracy
with the low range kit.
Lamotte nitrate-nitrogen, I find very easy to read.
LaMotte has a tblet version, I believe that is almost the
same range and which should be easier to use and cost about
