It's safe to say that water testing is a skill that every hobbyist should learn. Now, we're not fans of fanatically monitoring every parameter and going nuts if your water deviates by some small percentage from your desired number. However, we do believe that it's important to monitor some parameters, to check for the stability within a range.
One parameter that we think every aquarist should look at on a fairly regular basis is nitrate. It isn in our opinion, a "yardstick" of your aquarium's basic water quality, and keeping tabs on it can help you ascertain wether or not your on course to your goal of providing stable, healthy water conditions for your aquarium.
This cool test kit from our friends at Sachem combines Nitrite and Nitrate kits into one convenient kit. It has multi-cavity plate for simultaneous testing of up to 6 tests at the same time, is sensitive to less than 0.2 mg/L, and includes a reference for test validation. You can use it in both freshwater and marine systems, and it has a range of 0-25 mg/L (nitrite), 0-50 (nitrate), and a precision of 0.1 - 1 mg/l!
All in all, a great value on an outstanding test kit that can give you great insight into your aquarium's water quality!
