For cycling the tank the one made by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals the Saltwater Master kit is fine. Gives you tests for Ammonia, Ph, Nitrite and Nitrate. The kit is easy to use and fairly inexepensive.


After the cycle, I swithced to all Salifert kits. They might cost a bit more, but ave very accurate. I have tried the Seachem kits, but have found them very confusing, and the colors all too similar.


The main thing is to find one you like and use it.
