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 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.

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

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.

some potassium, iron or some compatibility to use test kits with fewer than two reagents for calcium or nitrate if they are even made :)

Hi, I find the supported KH tests all quite inaccurate (+- 0,5KH), so it would be nice if you could include the Fauna Marin Carbonate Test (+-0,1KH).
