Those are fine for pH but give terribly inaccurate readings for nitrate
and anything else but pH. ;-)
Seriously though, I can't get a meter for every chem I want to test.
Well, I *can* but I *should not*. But a pH meter is worth considering
if you have more than a few tanks or find yourself testing pH oftern
for some other reason. Buying my Pinpoint pH meter was as good a
purchase as any I ever made on aquarium equipment just for the
convenience. It's easy to maintain, accurate, and even my littlest
daughter can read it with ease.
