    What are you using to test Alk and Nitrates?

    Looking for the best and most accurate.

    Red Sea for Nitrate

    Note that your lab skills often matter more than the test kit.
    Always clean everything with RODI.
    Do you know what meniscus is and why it matters?
    Doing drops....

    IMO: Best Alk test is this one:

    Especially if you test a fairly large volume of water.
    Not as hard as it seems

    That said : I never bother with anything fancy. Chasing numbers ...
