I use the Tetra Nitrate testing kit. It has read 0 since I got it. The
next readable measurement in the kit is 12.5. I was wondering what a better
kit would be. Has anyone dealt with Hach? Which particular one is the best
for us? Also, my tank has been reading 0 phosphates ever since I started
testing with the Dupla kit. Does anyone know how to supplement the tank for
phosphates? What dose?
I have both the Tetra and an Aquarium Pharmaceuticals nitrate test kits.
These kits give readings which aren't even close to each other. I was
getting readings of zero with the AP and 25 from the Tetra kit, from the
same water. So I mixed up a reference solution of 15 ppm nitrate and found
that the AP kit was dead nuts on, while the Tetra kit read almost 50 ppm.
Sorry for the off-topic question, but I've decided to set up a reef tank.
If anyone knows of any good discussion lists, please e-mail me off-list.
