Hello all I’m currently trying to put together a comprehensive list of all the parameters to test for my upcoming sps dominated mixed reef. These are the ones I’m planning to purchase or already have.

Ammonia
Nitrite
Nitrate
Ph
Phosphate
Temperature
Alkalinity
Calcium
Magnesium
Potassium

What other parameters should I purchase test kits for (pls, put everything you can think of)? I don’t mind testing so I plan to test for everything which is beneficial to the health of my corals.

Any plans for a controller? That will change the need for test kits.

For testing/monitoring I use

Misco Salinity tester
Hanna ULR phosphate
Trident for alk/mag/cal
Hanna Alk for secondary weekly checks
Red Sea Nitrate
Apex for PH,Temp also have a vet thermometer

Have available to me but not required
Apogee 510
Apex ORP
Apex Salinity
Quarterly Triton test

I wasn’t planning on it until I start getting colony’s. Cause until then it’s not worth the cost to me.
