I am thinking of doing an ICP test. My last one I sent to ATI got lost in the mail and unfornately, I was never able to get around to send them a new sample (sent it before I was away from my tank). I am thinking of Fauna Marin or maybe Triton. Any thoughts on preferences between the two? I am wanting to do the Fauna Marin for the price, but I like that triton one is in the US (I am assuming it is less likely to get lost).


I know ICP tests may not be super accurate, but essentially I am wanting to see if certain trace elements have built up over time after having used all for reef for quite a while on a 0 water change system.

I believe that Triton now offers USA based ICP testing service through Unique Corals. I couldn't recommend one company over another though.

Have you seen this article?

I am new to icp testing and I have so far only sent out one test and it was the Fauna Marin. I read reviews and they were almost all horrible but most of them seemed to be that they never got results back. I believe that is because most people weren’t including enough postage. I took mine to the post office and just paid for shipping there and I got my results back 1 week after sending them in. I’m getting ready to do another icp test and I will be sticking with Fauna Marin. For the price Fauna Marin can’t be beat IMHO.

Yes I just mailed mine and then a week later received an email with the results. I don’t remember the address where I sent my last one, but I just checked the address on the kit I just ordered and it has the Houston address.
