I do it less often than you do - That said - I think my tank could do better if I tested more often. I like the simplicity of this device as compared to some of the others - I won't jump out to buy one until I see more information. I just hate testing. But - IMHO - this compares very favorably to the Trident.My testing regimen: API for alk (once a week or so), Hanna for phosphate (once every two weeks), Red Sea for magnesium/calcium (once a month). I can’t imagine that I spend more than $10/month on testing. I have no idea why anyone would need to test their tank 96 times a day (or whatever this does) for anything. Just because it can (and I get it really doesn’t cost more using this technology), doesn’t mean you should or need to.
Also, FWIW, I hope anyone that buys one of these is also double checking with a regular test kit for at least a few months, so it’s really $40/month plus whatever you spend for the back-up testing.
