XEOGUIYA First Impressions

"Helps keep my fish happy."

It does take some time though to actually get it done. I take every precaution about the chlorine, and trust the strips for everything else. Accurate results and much much cheaper than buying from a pet chain. Easy to use, a good quantity and quality for the price. But just for a quick check, its hard to beat these test strips. The strips are able to monitor pH, nitrate, nitrite, water hardness. Very easy to use and very easy to read test strips.

XEOGUIYA Final Thoughts

"Was good for 3 years."

I found running all the tests took me around 10 minutes. The stripa are easy to use, clear instructions and I gor results in seconds. My tap water actually was really green and was a very close match to the 1. The key is that you are looking for changes. You never want to wait too long and the tank crashes and has major problems. If you're out for speed, but with less accuracy get the dip tests. I take every precaution about the chlorine, and trust the strips for everything else.

"These strips are great."

Nice that so many things are tested with one dip in the water. If your lighting isn't right the colors will be very off. I have not had any problem whatsoever. I take every precaution about the chlorine, and trust the strips for everything else. It's quick and easy and can give you an alert if something may be going on. But just for a quick check, its hard to beat these test strips. It you take it to a local fish store.

"I really enjoy this kit."

So off to buy some sponge filters I went! I take every precaution about the chlorine, and trust the strips for everything else. Strips were always stored in a sealed dry place. This test kit is easy to use and the results are easy to read. They quickly shipped me a new product. But it is accurate and convenient as is. Tank lids, water additives and more have seen the same effect.

Nutrafin A7815 Final Thoughts

"Used the same kit before."

I found running all the tests took me around 10 minutes. These have worked to keep my fish safe and healthy. The API Test Strips are a good water monitoring system for small tanks. In my opinion they arent quite as accurate as master test kits either. Will definitely buy again, if we ever run out! Overall good value for a small hobbyist aquarium owner. But if it's wrong at least I was proactive about it.

"I really enjoy this kit."

The price is great for all these essential tests! This kit is extremely accurate and very well designed for convenient use and storage. Strips are accurate as far as I can tell. Takes about 5 minutes to check everything. Just dip the strip in the tank water for two seconds, then read right away. So this thing worked very well and gave a reading that made perfect sense. I've already lost one test tube cap, most likely due to my cats playing with them.

AUVON First Impressions

"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.
  • What you receive: 100 x Blood Test Strips for Dogs and Cats, 1 x Test Strip User Guide, our 12-month warranty, lifetime technical support and friendly customer service. (For use with AUVON veterinary blood glucose monitor only)

AUVON Final Thoughts

"So read the instructions."

I have not had any problem whatsoever. I cut each strip down the middle so that I have even more tests. It helps get you in the ballpark with your water perimeters. 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.

"Great test kit."

Tank lids, water additives and more have seen the same effect. It's quick and easy and can give you an alert if something may be going on. I find that the accuracy is wrong in the sense it's better than it reads. Just be careful, after all these are chemicals. The nitrate test is a little finicky as most users will agree. Takes about 5 minutes to check everything. My tap water actually was really green and was a very close match to the 1.

"It's worth it."

If you're out for speed, but with less accuracy get the dip tests. I used to always take a water sample to the pet store and they would teat it. This spreads out the 6 month expiration date after opening. A plus is that they don't bleed colors while testing. It does'not' have the same accuracy but it’s very close. Comes with a lot of test strips, that are extremely easy to use and read. Unfortunately nitrates still might be the most important test, at least for me it is.

"These are great!"

It's really accurate and makes me feel like I'm a scientist while doing it. If you keep freshwater fish, you will need this test kit. But if it's wrong at least I was proactive about it.

But it turns out that is not the case.

"Quick and easy use."

It you take it to a local fish store. I tested the water and the nitrates and the ph were pretty high still. Then replace the caps of the bottle and test vial. I was having trouble keeping my fish tank water looking good. Despite what it says on the chart, oxygen at 6mg will cause fish to start gulping. Not really sure if there is a way to fix that though. It's difficult to tell if all the test sites on the strip are accurate.

"+1-800-526-0650."

Best price, best quality, fair accuracy and better than most brands, etc. While using these weirder chemicals, it worries me a little bit. It does'not' have the same accuracy but it’s very close. It shows it could be between 1-20 but the liquid shows 0. The price is great for all these essential tests! Not sure if the reading is 0 or more likely something between 0-. Strips were always stored in a sealed dry place.

"Very easy to use."

It was also kinda hard to get exactly 5ml Into the tubes. The kH pad sometimes has the same problem as well. The stripa are easy to use, clear instructions and I gor results in seconds. These strips are not to be trusted as a primary testing method for aquariums. They show results, what is safe& not safe and what to do if not safe. Very helpful for checking the water in our tank. Just dip the strip in the tank water for two seconds, then read right away.
