Not all of the alerts are as quick to register, but some are. They usually are slower to go back to 0ppm than they are to register a spike.
For me its a good product that I have found useful for me in the past. Would I buy it again? I sure would. Why? Because it works for what I want it for.
Everyone has their opinions on the pros and cons of a product and different reasons they would or wouldnt use it. This is a product review, meaning how the product performs, its uses, its drawbacks... if you dont use it because of whatever reason, thats fine, but I still feel others are entitled to not feel like an ignorant or bad fish keeper by not having the time or experience to sit and watch their fish for signs of an ammonia spike. I know I personally dont always sit and watch my fish on a regular basis like I wish I could. I manage to feed them twice a day and turn their lights on and off every day and thats about it for daily stuff. So, I like the idea that while I am watching my 14 month old nephew I know that if I glance across the room at my ammonia alert I can feel better knowing that things are okay in the tank for the time being... has it ever had to register ammonia on my 29g that it is usually in? No, it hasnt. Its an established tank and I do keep up with my routine water changes and other upkeeps, so there isnt a reason I should have an ammonia spike, but as others have pointed out, I like knowing its there just in case, and I dont
feel like I am wasting my money.
