API Freshwater Master Test Kit $16 on Amazon


API Fresh Water Master Kit - $16



Pretty good deal, usually ~$25 retail (Petsmart charges $32, double!). These last a long time, I still have mine from last year mostly full.

WOW this is a really good deal!! Too bad I got two kits... I had one and then a friend borrowed mine and I didn't think that I would get it back (after a month and a half) I bought another and went to using it and then got my first back...

Anyone know what the shelf life is on the chemicals? The date on my bottles is the manufacture date, random forum posts I googled out say ~3 years, but nothing official.

That is a good deal. We should all check to see if our test kits are expired. Now that I think about it mine probably is.

i got mine with super saver shipping so yes i think its free if you order more than $25 worth of stuff. i grabbed a GH/KH kit.

*just a warning, AMAZON SAYS THIS HAS A GH/KH TEST BUT IT DOES NOT. GH/KH TEST KIT IS SOLD SEPARATELY*

if you buy both i believe the total should come to about 25 ish? or a little less. get yourself a book or something nice

Well that's disappointing. After reading some of the reviews it seems like Amazon will give partial refunds though.


Shipping is free if you spend over $25 or have amazon prime.

I had no idea these were supposed to come with GH/KH, my last kit (paid $30~) didn't have it either. Ugh.

Price went up $2 :/

the GH/KH kits dont come with the master kit. in the description it says that it does but i dont think API manufactures the 2 together. there are 7 bottles in the API kit and 4 tubes. pH, high range pH, nitrite, nitrate 1 and 2, ammonia 1 and 2. GH/KH kits are sold separately. so they dont come with it but amazon i guess mistakenly said that they did.
