i definitely plan on doing this when funds can afford it; I am simply using the strips that were included with the tank set-up when it was given to me :/

When it comes time for the hardness test kit, get the API liquid that does GH only. It will be less expensive than the GH/KH test. You don't need to bother with KH, I never use it, but I do test GH as now when I am doing much the same as you are.
