As the title asks... I'm interested in knowing if anyone has tried out the Quantum ICP test?

Details (or lack thereof): https://www.quantumaqua.com.au/product/advanced-icp-oes-water-analysis/

I've taken the plunge and sent some samples off today. I only have my test kits to compare results against but may try ATI/Triton next to check to see if there are any major red flags between the two sets of results.

No major differences. Sam Parker did a video a while ago to compare when they were new, but I'd take the rankings with a grain of salt (the accuracy was determined by how close it was to the other tests etc. which isn't really valid, but it's useful as far as user experience goes. Quantum was the new kid on the block at the time and I'm sure things are more dialled in now too).


I wouldn't stress about the accuracy of any of the tests. They're all going to give useful results.
 

Do you quarantine new coral before adding it to your reef tank?
