Sera 8040 First Impressions

Best strips ever.

You never want to wait too long and the tank crashes and has major problems. The test strips work as advertised. About my pic color difference of the water and the chart and about the bad reviews. You never want to wait too long and the tank crashes and has major problems. Takes about 5 minutes to check everything. The nitrate test is a little finicky as most users will agree. I mean some people would never do a water test at all.

Sera 8040 Final Thoughts

I used API prior to this.

It does not test ammonia but that's clear in the description and bottle. I tested the water and the nitrates and the ph were pretty high still. I've already lost one test tube cap, most likely due to my cats playing with them. I have not had any problem whatsoever. I set up a bunch of 20 gallon tanks for fry and stuff. It shows it could be between 1-20 but the liquid shows 0. If you keep freshwater fish, you will need this test kit.
