Lamotte 3110 vs 3354
I did a little reading on here tonight. I'm about to buy my test kits for nitrate and phosphate.
Seems MOST folks are happy with their Red Sea kit for testing phosphate, but the Red Sea kit for nitrate isn't so great.
So I'm considering buying the Red Sea for phosphate and perhaps a Lamotte kit for nitrate. Marinedepot.com sells the Lamotte 3110 kit for 43.99 which seems like a competitive price. My question is, whats the difference between the Lamotte nitrate kit #3110 and #3354. Just different reagents? Do both test provide abuot 50 tests? Can refills be bought for both units? I'm thinking of going with the 3110.
As an aside, people also seem to have good things to say about the AP kits for nitrate, for those of you wondering about a cheaper nitrate alternative
