I got some tetra 5in1 testing sticks but can anyone tell me how to use them? I have no insturctions just the chart to check the colours against. So, how much of the stick do I dip in the water and for how long? :tf: :?:

Well it really depends on the brand of test kit. I think Jungle Lab test strips should be left after dipped for about 1 minute for the color to show up. There should be 5 little lightly colored bars on the strip and you would need to dip the strip so all 5 bars get dipped into the water. Did the test strips come with instructions?

take some water out of the tank (say in a cup or sth) dip the test strip in and walk around with it till it dries, not touching the wet part. if you put it down somewhere before then, there's a high chance of it getting contaminated and the readings being wrong.

for future, liquid tests (although they cost a fortune) are more accurate then test strips

You know I am sure Kat and me have given advice on water test strips before, on BTF. In the past I have used Esha and just recently tried Tetra. As to there accuracy, I'm with Kat, it is is debatable. The problem lies in contamination once the tube has been opened. The advice that normally comes with the packaging, for both the aforementioned, states, after the removal of a strip that the lid should be replaced immediately, then then the strip should be held in the water (in the tank (or as Kat suggested)) for one second, readings are taken after one minute. As to their economical value, not really for multi tank setups.

They are Tetra but as these have a date on them of 2002 and have probably been open for years I am not counting much on what they say I just wanted to try them out as I got them given to me. Tried them and it all looks good. :cheers:

Sorry I didnt get back to this sooner. IMHO bin them, the chances are they will be contaminated and consequently giving you a false reading,

Hate to say it, but in my opinion, they suck.
I had them and it really stuffed me up.
Pets at Home do a nice multiple liquid test set for ?17.99 - as opposed to ?23 that they are normally.
I'd invest in one of them - they go for miles - I have two sets, one for work, one at home.

That is usually the problem with test strips, accurate (well somewhat) first couple strips, as Quirlys stated they suck. IME the API master test kit is a great deal. It is extremely accurate and uses the 2 part ammonia test . Forget what they are called nessler or the other one. Anyway the strips and the single reagent ones can be misleading. The free ammonia could by pH, or something to that effect. I find that API is easy to use, lasts up to 3 years (AP claims to discard them after a year, if you close the lids and store them in a cool dry location they are accurate up to 3 years) a little less if you cycle more then one aquarium, the constant tests burn up the reagents fast. I have cycled 4 aquariums with one kit aside from occasional testing. The kit was purchase 3 years ago next month and all of the tests are still somewhat full. I burned up the ammonia last month and pH is about dead. Test strips in the US are really expensive. They go for $19 US online, up to $26 in stores. Frankly I dont know anyone who would buy them at this price + shipping, but it may be a bargain for the UK <a href='http://cgi.ebay.com/API-FRESHWATER-MASTER-LIQUID-TEST-KIT_W0QQitemZ7740244650QQcategoryZ20758QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem' target='_blank'>http://cgi.ebay.com/API-FRESHWATER-MASTER-...1QQcmdZViewItem</a>

.

I ran out and bought a kit from my LFS but they only had JBL I bought one it tests <span style='color:red'>pH (3-10), Fe, KH (CH), NO2 und NO3 </span>and it was about ?30 did I get ripped off? Good news is my levels are all good. The sticks seem to have been telling the truth after all. :cheers:
