I use API and i've heard great things from Salifer and the Elos is on the same level as Salifer.

I use API for most. Recently tried the Sera test kit for Manesium, but I'm skeptical of the results. From what Ive tested Mg tests out at 1300 on the Salifert kit, tests at over 1800 on the Sera kit. So, I'll be going to the Salifert kit for Mg as I know these numbers to be a bit more accurate.

Salifer remains to be the more accurate unless you use something like the Haugh... i don't know how to spell it, but that's how it sounds. Then there's the test kit that's electronic and shoots a lazer through the water and tells you all that you need... but i believe that one's a few thou... so i'd get a salife or API
