To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Fast postage, easy to use, takes 30 seconds, for hobby purposes it seems accurate enough and to that degree, I can tell the difference between the different shades of colours. I can confirm it gives different readings for tap, reverse osmosis, fresh, salt, my home tanks and store water. Apparently the individual test are more accurate, but take a lot longer to use (i.e. 3 mins for 6 different tests). Happy with purchase (especially as it was discounted when I purchased).
Cuando comencé a usar las tiras no tenía ni idea de que necesitaba un acuario, ni mucho menos en lo que consistía un ciclado. Por lo que este producto me ha sido útil ya que puedes medir todos los niveles para tener un acuario saludable. He visto otro medidores pero cada uno son individuales lo que hace elevar los costos y perder atención a otros niveles ya que mucho de nosotros nos enfocamos más en el Ph.
En el frasco tiene la tabla de colores para poder hacer la lectura, en lo particular la App de estas tiras me ha servido para poder solucionar algún nivel que no esté correcto, lógicamente te sugiere producto Tetra que te ayudará con el problema sin embargo esto de guiará en el aprendizaje para tener un acuario saludable.
The only down fall is the PH part of the stick -- colours are very close together making it hard to read - ok for gross PH readings but not fine. They need to select a differnent PH indicator eg. like yellow to blue. All other indicators seem to work well.
great for quick easy testing... Doesn't beat the accuracy of the API droppers and test tubes, but also doesn't take 20 mins to run the tests. Not a complete replacement, but great for a quick weekly check to make sure everything is in line.
As anyone who has fish knows, water quality is essential for their survival in either a tank or a pond. Rather than using several testing mediums to test the quality of the water (one for each of the nitrates, nitrites, water hardness, PH, etc), I find it very convenient to test all the key elements at once with one little strip. The strips are very easy to use. All one has to do is to soak it in the water for one second and it provides all the readings 30 seconds later.
These strips cover everything and if you also use the Tetra care app it will tell you how to fix any missing aspects of your tank water to help keep your fish healthy and happy. Will for sure be buying again
