Jim,
I haven't used that brand of test kit myself but just wanted to offer the advice that these kits (all of them) are given a 'best before' use by date, after which they become a bit less accurate so it's worth bearing that in mind.

Personally i dont like the sera kits i have found them to be no good in my tanks.
I use tetra or else api master test kit and never strips.I also have a digital ph meter and ammonia reader for the tanks for quick checks.

The Seneye water monitoring system looks great i wonder if any one in Ireland has this system and if so can they advise on cost of the monthly strips?

Hi Jim

Seahorse had the seneye so I presume they have prices on the monthly strips, proably worth a call.

The précis of the tester in seahorse was the same as the seneye site.

I've kinda lost faith in my API kit also with all the chatter online about them not being any good.

Cheers

I use jbl in my planted tank & have always found them pretty accurate . Api seem to be the choice in marine test kits ? Are jbl marine any good?

I have a seneye Reef in the planted tank & find it pretty useful. When I change the strip next month I'll switch it to my new nano reef .
I'm sure I paid about 20€ for 3 months supply of strips .
I find the ph gives an incorrect reading for a day or two when I put the new strips in. Other than that , par,lux,kelvin , nh3 , temp all work great.
It's a pity it has to be connected to the Internet to give immediate info to your iPhone etc .
