API has a fresh water master testing kit for around $30. Just about every pet store carries it. I don't know if it's the best but once you calibrate some of the tests you can get pretty decent results.

I like the API Master Kit. I would shy away from the test strips, they don't seem to be very accurate. The strips also have a short expiration date after you open the pack.

If you have Amazon Prime membership you can get it there, a lot cheaper compared to petstore

Thanks to Amazon I rarely buy anything in store other than live stock
