    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh They were easy enough to use. Just dip them in the water, wait a bit, check results against the guide. However, they always showed my tank as basic by about 1 pH above neutral no matter the water changes. They also always showed my tank as well within the safe range for nitrates and nitrites even when I got lazy about water changes. Also the color guide was not laminated or water resistant so eventually the colors bled off enough to make the whole thing useless. Not worth the money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Accurate Enough-Hard To Read Bought these Strips to test water perimeters in 5 gallon tank that we were cycling. It may have been due to our age/eyesight, but the Strips were hard to read/compare to the color codes on the container. They were most definitely EASY to use as far as "dip in tank, pull out, wait a minute and read.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Try another brand These test strips are very difficult to read. The pH tends to give mixed results and the colors run. It is nearly impossible to tell the difference in color between the Nitrite readings and I have found the Nitrate readings to be inaccurate. I have used several brands of test strips and found these to be the worst quality of them all. Try the ones made by Jungle labs as they work much better.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kind of works? In general these test strips work as intended. However, with that being said, they tend to read high and vary slightly from strip to strip. Our new 10 gallon tank had a severely high ph level upon start up. Adding (ph down) at 2 ml between tests it still didn't show any change. Using the traditional test drops method, the vials showed an accurate change as the strips did not. After a massive (no fish involved) 20 ml dose of ph down, the strip reacted but still read high by 1 full scale. I would only recommend these If you wanted to test on a budget.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not accurate i get my water tested all the time at petsmart for free everytime you nitrates are high I use prime do water changes etc. Bought the tube water master test kit guess what nitrates were fine.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very difficult to read! I found these strips very hard to read....there were only very slight color changes between each reading, many of which represented large swings in water chemistry. I will be going back to the tube tests which are much easier to read as well as much cheaper.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not consistent data I can dip 3 different strips in, all will have different results. Not really a problem with the product itself but with the testing method, its near impossible to get the exact same amount of water coming in contact with the medium every time so the results are always different. Do yourself a favor and just get the API Master Fresh or Saltwater Kit, its not as easy and quick but its very accurate. The liquid test method is very consistent and reliable.
