Having Your Aquarium Water Tested

Having your aquarium water tested when you go to your LFS (Local Fish Stores) ┬áis a great way to compare the results you get at home to theirs. We take advantage of this every time we go to Preuss Pets. They use a few different brands depending on the test being done, but they told us that they use Salifert as well, which according to many forums we read is one of the best testing brands. We use API, which is cheaper, and gives us a rough idea on the ammonia, nitrate, and pH levels we monitor regularly. Preuss Pets gives us a form with our results on it, as well as the recommended levels. They will also make recommendations if any of our levels are out of range and answer questions we may have about water quality. It’s a great resource all aquarists should take advantage of.
