To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I just wanted a simple test kit I could use a daily to make sure my tank was in balance. I was losing alot of fish and needed something to help me pinpoint what the problem was so I could fix it. 32 seconds and I have a reading and I'm on my way with no mess.
We got well water so I needed something to check nitrates and hardness as well as ph, this does it! Also it comes with 100 strips in the bottle and 50 extra in an air tight little packet! So if the ones in the bottle get expired or damaged, crack the new packet open. Awesome. Works in like 3 seconds, fish are now ready for some new water!
It’s not often you find a business who TRULY puts their customers first. I’m so glad out of all the products available to purchase I took time to order from these folks. My original product was damaged and when reaching out to the company they without haste sent me a replacement. Great product which helped my tank thrive. You even get a bonus gift. Yay!!! Great buy!!!
Really inaccurate. My son was given some fish by his grandparents as a gift. I immediately started doing water changes and doing my best to keep the fish healthy and happy. The fish are around 1 year old and did well the first month. I tested the water weekly with these strips and the parameters were always good. One day one of my fish started looking slow and barely moving. Before I could quarantine it , it passed away. The next day the other fish began to do the same. I decided to go to the pet store and purchase the full water testing kits. The parameters were WAY off! I was killing my sons poor fish. Luckily I was able to do a couple of water changes and everything regulated. I immediately tossed the strips out. No other fishes passed but I had to console my crying son because he loved his fish .
These strips are very easy to use once you figure out how to read them. Instead of matching the strip to one color block(like I was), hold it between two colors to see if it blends in. I like that they test for all the basic water quality factors in one test. No tubes or dangerous test chemicals. Only complaint is some of the test pads fall off the strip.
These are great ! They show results, what is safe & not safe and what to do if not safe. Even give you a complimentary e-book on setting up and maintaining an aquarium and gave me a bag of bonus testing strips! Would buy again for sure !
Update 1-15-2021 These strips are not anything close to accurate and are a waste of money I have now checked them against 2 other test methods and these are way off from the other two methods, which agree with each other
I doubt the accuracy of these strips I have a liquid PH test kit which indicates the water is between 6.6 and 6.8 These strips indicate an acidity clear beyond the ranger of measurement. There is not a single chance the water is that acid All I can assume is that the ph part of the strip is not working. The rest of the measurements are in line with what I think is correct as I used almost all reverse osmosis filter which does a very good job of eliminating minerals and contaminants That water with the liquid tester tests 7.6 which is alkaline. I gave it a three because the results I get on the other parts are probably accurate
As with most test stripes it's easy to use. However, the colors easily bleed over to each other even when held level. Also, be prepared to convert Kh as this chart is not the typical measurement method used.
I wrote the review below to bring attention to the defective thermometer I received. I have not heard from the company nor received a replacement. Also, I tried getting the useless thing off my tank and it’s left a nasty mess. I tried using a blade to scrape it off- scratched my tank. I tried using a chemical remover- now there’s a large white opaque mess on my tank that I can’t get off. Such an eye sore. I highly recommend purchasing your aquarium needs else where.
The test strips seem to do their job. They’re easy to use and seem to be a great price for the quantity. The only complaint I have is that the stick on thermometer does not work. It simply doesn’t change colors for temperature reading. I didn’t necessarily buy these strips for the thermometer, but it influenced my purchase as I also needed one for one of my small tanks. Oh well.
I originally gave it One Star because the strips didnt detect Nitrates as per my original reviews below. . However , customer service was excellent and they refunded. So their customer service is a Five Star, so I changed the overall review to Three Stars. Its hard not to like a company that goes out of their way to make a wrong , Right.
Tested a 3 day old tank with no fish and a 3 month old tank with fish. Both read Zero Nitrates. Then tested with Tetra strips I had leftover and Tetra read 100-150 Nitrates with older tank with fish.
