Is there a kit you recommend? Amazon has API, Seachem, Salifert, and a bunch of drinking water brands.

Salifert way easier to read and has 0-3ppm range in 6 color steps.

I love seeing a good TARDIS in an aquarium. Ours is home to our BN Pleco 🙂

The zebra gang loves the Tardis. They take turns zooming in the bottom and out the top. Love watching them!

Mini update:

Algae ratcheted up with that extra hour in photo period 2, so I knocked it back down to two 3-hr. photo periods. I wiped a good amount of diatoms and green algae off the glass when I did my water change tonight. Ordered the phospate kit--it arrives next week--which is fine since I am headed out of town for a quick trip through the weekend. Will check back in when I get the phosphate test results.

Happy Presidents' Day weekend, All!
