Whaaaaaaaaat? Time for a new LFS! Every employee should know how to do the three basic water tests, were they new?

I think you should be buying some of the standard test kits.

Nitrate
nitrite
ammonia
ca
alk

You can't reef without them. Mind you the first 3 listed are only good for the beginning. Watching the cycle as it works through the denitrification stage. Afterwards, you'll most likely only need ca and alk test.

I wouldn't be going to a LFS that doesn't know how to do a simple ammonia test.

I don't know how to test anomia either. Ammonia though, that's easy.

I have test kits for my reef, but don't have anything to check the cycle ( don't have ammonia) I have had my tank going a while now. First of all they said sure its easy and free so I thought whats the risk? Then I asked to have them check Ammonia, Nirates and Nitrates. They said "oh I can't do those they are to hard! I can try nitrates, I guess" I don't think I will be heading back anytime soon...I will also be buying a couple more test kits, but not from them!

First one's easy as well, when you can't remember the simple names of things, like sofa, jacket, fork, you have anomia.

anomia |əˈnōmēə|
noun Medicine

a form of aphasia in which the patient is unable to recall the names of everyday objects.
