Have you tried eBay? This one will end on Dec. 27 so you may need to hurry up a bit.:)

I have AP and personally they aren't so good., IMHO. Hard to get consistant results and hard to read the colors.

I think for GH, KH and pH they should work fine but for NO3 and PO4, there is a better kit out there, I think Red Sea for one and Hagens for another but I don't remember.

Either kit will work but make sure you callibrate them with a known solution so you know what your results are for sure and not guessing. I recommend that for any and all kits. If you need to get a less expensive one, the AP should work fine. I may not like it but it does work well enough to give me the results I need to see.
