Hi all, I bought myself a Calcium Hanna Checker and just tested it out. I've been having issues with low Calcium that I'm trying to solve, so I thought I'd get it to make my life easier. Previously, I was using the API test kit, and I was slowly raising my readings. Today, I got a reading of 380 ppm with it. But I tried the Hanna checker, and it told me 418 ppm.... I did some googling and found a few people saying they had the same sort of inconsistent/high results. I guess my question is, did I waste my money? Should I pick up a Salifert kit instead? Reviews on Marine Depot were positive, so I'm very frustrated about making a poor purchase/not doing enough research. I know $60 is chump change in this hobby, but still....
Hey guys, Anyone else frustrated with the red sea Alkalinity test kit. My new one recently has a final colour of Yellow/green. And no matter how many times I do it I just cant get a semi accurate reading of the colour change.. Before it used to turn from Blue to Red if I remember correctly. (has made me stop testing as pointless getting in-accurate readings :/ Debating switching to a Hanna Alk tester. But some people Ive spoken to say its not that good either.. Any thoughts or recommendations.
