"These are just easier."

If I had a complaint, I wish the color legend was printed on the bottle. I was having trouble keeping my fish tank water looking good. They test pretty accurate when run against my chemical tests. It's quick and easy and can give you an alert if something may be going on. No issues so far, test strips work well. But after last night these are a must have for me. I've already lost one test tube cap, most likely due to my cats playing with them.

Decdeal First Impressions

"Nice product."

This spreads out the 6 month expiration date after opening. Strips were always stored in a sealed dry place. This is a kit to test for my aquarium water quality. In my opinion they arent quite as accurate as master test kits either. Their Whisper 1-5 filter cartridges have skyrocketed in price and become a scarcity. First and second test have a little change which was expected. The caps do leak a tiny bit on the tubes.

"Was working great."

It does take some time though to actually get it done. To test it, I bought a 5 pack of 5 site test strips from Petco. As you can see in comparison the only difference was the Nitrate. They show results, what is safe& not safe and what to do if not safe. Nice that so many things are tested with one dip in the water. They quickly shipped me a new product. Easy to use, a good quantity and quality for the price.

Overall good value for a small hobbyist aquarium owner. Nice that so many things are tested with one dip in the water. I was having trouble keeping my fish tank water looking good.

"These strips are great."

But after last night these are a must have for me. These are working very well for me. They showed the same results as these for the sites they had in common. My tap water actually was really green and was a very close match to the 1. Strips are accurate as far as I can tell. The stripa are easy to use, clear instructions and I gor results in seconds. I set up a bunch of 20 gallon tanks for fry and stuff.

5Strands First Impressions

"It is very easy to use."

In my opinion they arent quite as accurate as master test kits either. It is one small part of the overall aquarium ownership experience. Accurate results and much much cheaper than buying from a pet chain. Price is good for the quantity and functionality of the tester strips. About my pic color difference of the water and the chart and about the bad reviews. Probably won't buy again because of the bleeding issues. Not sure if the reading is 0 or more likely something between 0-.

  • 5Strands Pet Nutrition Test - at Home Cat & Dog Collection Kit - Tests 40+ Supplement Nutrition Deficiencies, Vitamins, Amino Acids, Minerals, Hair Analysis
  • Are looking to better your pet’s health? Is your pet experiencing hair loss, joint pain, inflammation, or dry skin? To prevent or alleviate these discomforts you must get to the root of the problem and adjust their diet or environment. The 5Strands Pet Nutrition Test will indicate your pet’s ability to process and properly absorb the 40 ITEMS TESTED.
  • 5Strands scans your pet’s hair sample (10-15 strands) using bioresonance technology to provide an extensive, easy-to-understand report. You can expect to receive your pet’s test RESULTS WITHIN 7-10 DAYS after the hair sample arrives to 5Strands processing center. For you to see any positive transformation, this test requires 100% interaction.
  • Inflammation can cause the cells to not absorb nutrients properly. This will then inhibit the body from effectively performing certain functions. A nutrient imbalance can occur when your pet is fed a poor quality commercial dry food. While most dog foods do a great job providing a complete and balanced diet, there are many factors that can cause your dog to still develop imbalances for certain nutrients. Most commercial pet foods are designed for the "average" pet.
  • Certain medications can cause nutrients to metabolize faster than usual. Each pet has its own unique internal chemistry and metabolism, their own environment, and their own genetic make up. Even though pet food manufacturers may use high quality, bio-available ingredients, pets could be lacking the nutrients they need because they were not getting enough of them.
  • If you are currently giving your pet a supplement and that item registered on your report, it can indicate that the source of the supplement is not being absorbed properly by the body. This would indicate the need for them to consume whole foods that contain the nutrients needed, versus continuing on the synthetic supplement.

Price is good for the quantity and functionality of the tester strips. I have not found that to be true for myself. My tap water actually was really green and was a very close match to the 1. They test pretty accurate when run against my chemical tests. But if it's wrong at least I was proactive about it. If I had a complaint, I wish the color legend was printed on the bottle.

"So they're measuring!"

The test strips work as advertised. Always nice to get something extra! I cut each strip down the middle so that I have even more tests. The strips are packaged well so they stay fresh and ready to use. Their Whisper 1-5 filter cartridges have skyrocketed in price and become a scarcity. Besides these few flaws I have to say it's a great starter kit. I tested the water and the nitrates and the ph were pretty high still.

  • AUVON Blood Glucose Test Strips for Dogs and Cats (100 Count) for use with AUVON High-Tech Veterinary Animal-Specific Blood Sugar Test Kit
  • RECOMMENDED HOME TESTING. Many pets may become frightened and stressed when they visit the veterinary hospital. This stress can adversely affect the bg levels, causing the levels to increase solely because of physiological effects of stress on the body. A bg curve performed at home is done in a less stressful environment, and it's likely to produce a curve that is more representative of the actual bg levels.
  • INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS. Insufficient blood applied to test strip and incorrect operation will result in wrong readings. Watch our instructional videos in our listings to optimize your testing results. Our friendly customer support will always be here to answer your questions and help to resolve your concerns. (30 Day Money Back Guarantee)
  • MONEY SAVING. PROMISED 0.6USD per strip would keep you no pressure to repurchase with a significant cost savings!
  • HIGH ACCURACY. AUVON veterinary bgm is specifically calibrated for dogs and cats and accounts for the differences in the blood makeup of different species. This outstanding product can function within ±12%, or ±12 mg/dl of laboratory values over 95% of the time.

This spreads out the 6 month expiration date after opening. Nice to have in hand when you own an aquarium. In my opinion they arent quite as accurate as master test kits either. Unfortunately nitrates still might be the most important test, at least for me it is.

Despite what it says on the chart, oxygen at 6mg will cause fish to start gulping.
