Yeah I figured. It seems to be the favorite, I just figured I would see if there was anything else.

I use the dip sticks more often than the test tube style of tests. I have used both at the same time often enough to know how to compare the results.

API: Good. Dated so I know how old they are.
Red Sea Fe: Never got a color that matched the chart.

Jungle 5-way or 6-way test strips: Well, I know what the colors mean when they do not match the chart.

Jungle Ammonia and Chlorine/chloramine test strips: Good.

Spa and pool tests: These work, too.

How do people feel about the Sera kits? I tried doing a search a few days ago, and one point that came up was that people who have trouble with color perception seemed to find the Sera easier to read.

Anyone else have any input, pros/cons?

the test strips that use the drops and the vial are much better because you feel very scientific when you are using them. I have bought a pair of glasses and a white lab coat to enhance the effect, I think we all should!

I've only used one - API (liquid). I have heard that liquid tests are more accurate from a number of sources. Some of the colors are a little off or hard to read, but you do what you can.

Sera Master Kit

Easy to read. Easy to use. I have the master kit and really like it. I have used API as well. The water vials are wider like JBL or Red sea. They have both Fresh and Marine.:)
