Can you make a sticky page for all the test kits and how many are needed to fill the reefbot bottles?
I know I have seen the info somewhere but cant find it now.

Thank you
The tropic marin n03 test is not available for delivery in the us.
Where are people getting them?
An internet search didnt give any options either.

That's going to be a tough one. Because you form a dense precipitate as the first step with the Salifert test, you'd probably have to use reflected light instead of transmitted.

I was going to say the same thing. Potassium will be hard because it causes such a persistent precipitate in the test vial.

Nice, thanks! Does the FM NO3 test have a refill kit or just the whole complete kit?
There is both the entire Test kit, and a refill kit. You do not need of all the test viles and syringes that come in the complete test kit. So the refills will work for use with the Reefbot. Nitrate uses reagent A, B & C while Nitrite uses only A & C

Ok, that’s great information. I didn’t see the refill kit anywhere in the US, do you know who has ordered the refill kits here? Thanks!

Edit: I followed the link and that’s where to get them in the US. I wasn’t familiar with CM distributors. Thanks!!!

How many Reefbot vials will the Fauna Marin test kit require to run? It looks like the test kit has 4 solutions but I'm assuming some will be combined in the Reefbot vials to not require 4 of them to be stored separately?
Requires three reefbot vials.
