Which parameter should we add next?
The trident reagents go bad after a few months, so you would have to test 4x alk and 2x Ca and mg just like trident. Would be very expensive compared to existing solutions. But fewer vials for sure.Look into trying and adding the reagents that the new Neptune Trident uses could be coo (if possible), and the NYOS line of test kits. Also maybe the Hanna checker reagents.
The Hanna Alk reagent isn't a powder tho. Also I don't know if the Trident reagents are quite as unstable as you make it sound. Either way, its worth them doing some testing and finding out. It could be a great solution if it works.The trident reagents go bad after a few months, so you would have to test 4x alk and 2x Ca and mg just like trident.

The Hanna reagents are powder. Won’t work in reefbot.
