I agree with Willis's human, salifert kits are great, easy to use, accurate, middle priced. For what you get they seem to be the best value. No reefer would be mad if they found those under the tree. LOL. HTH. Steve
Finns as per what kinds to buy it would depend at what stage in the game they were at. If they have had a tank up for a bit and its mature (about a year) I would get them cal, alk, phosphate and magnesium if you could. If thier new I would get ammonia, nitrate, nitrite and phosphate.
at what part per million does drool become a problem, or is it only if it lowers the spec. grav. to much? lol I figure mojo would know. LOL
Willis's human thinks that's pretty darn funny, but they do make dribble towels for people with that specific problem.
I don't ever test for Iodine, I think regular water changes with a good salt should keep Iodine and Strontium at the prscribed levels.
Thanks everybody, yeah I was thinking Salifert.
This is for someone that moved to Austin TX and is having a few problems with a new setup. I guess they are not getting alot of good info at the lfs, or are having problems implementing the instructions.
So I figure that the best starting point would be good test kits.
