no!! it has like a hundred tests in it!!! it really it worth the money...the only problem, and i really cant call it a problem is that the directions say to shake nitrate bottle number 2 for 30 seconds and to get a really acurate result it needs to be shaken 2-3 minutes ( you will understand when you get the kit). i test my water weekly....but once you get it and run the tests post the results. dont waist money on the test strips they are VERY unreliable...be sure to get a liquid master test kit that tests for pH, Ammonia, Nirtrite, and Nitrate

Why are you so stuck up about buying a test kit. Its the most accurate way to help diagnose problems occuring in your tank. Like the other person has suggested API is probably the most accurate and most reliable. You get like 6 test tubes that you re-use and like 8 chemicals to test like ph,nitrate, nitrite, ammonia ect. When you are done, you just rinse out the test tubes and they are ready for next time.

again, it has AT LEAST 100 tests in it....as rohland said the tubes are glass and are reusable.....we are only trying to help you help your fish.....if you want a successful aquarium with healthy fish just listen to the advice given.....im not saying i or anyone else on here knows everything because, believe me, i know FAR from everything but with everyone combined we know a hell of a lot and it is all from personal experience and what others with personal experience have told us. But is seems to me from comments you have made in this thread and others you have posted you always have a negative look on things. We do not benefit from getting you to spend money on unneccessary things, as a matter of fact we are all into trying to find economical ways to successfully maintain aquariums. i dont know what else to say.....if you would just take the advice given i think you be surprised at much you find out and how much happier and healthier your fish will be.....im done here
