Went through 7 pages and nobody has listed Fauna Marin Aquahome tests. I used to use 2 different API kits to cover all the bases but was advised to change to Fauna Marin for greater accuracy and did so. Haven't got enough experience to say if one is better but Fauna takes more time and does appear more 'lab' grade. Use it for:
NH2
NH3
PO4
KH
Ca
Mg

However, waiting for my backordered GHL KH and Ion directors for KH and Ca/Mg.
Anybody got experience in Fauna Marin tests or GHL testers/dozers?

Hanna ALK, fast and way way accurate. Can be done in less than a minute.
Salifert for CA MG, fast, easy, uncomplicated and accurate.
Can be done in less than 2 minutes.

The Hanna CA checker required quite a few steps.
