 As  I  can  see,  there  was  a  forum  on  water  test  kits  on  this  site  in  the  year  2012.  There  could  be  difference  of  opinion  whether  to  use  water  test  kits  or  no,  especially  for  freshwater.  But  if  u  believe  in  using  test  kits,  this  forum  is  for  u.  Personally  I  believe  that,  every  beginner  must  ve  these  till  they  understand  the  chemistry  of  their  planted  Aquarium.
 
 There  r  plenty  of  foreign  water  test  kit  manufacturers  like  API,  SERA  and  wild.  most  ppl  use  API  which  are  also  expensive.  Comparatively  wild  seems  to  b  of  low  price.  
 
 If  u  r  changing  water  every  fortnightly,  n  testing  water  with  every  water  change,  ull  need  kits  which  ll  last  48  times.  Usually  all  test  kits  come  with  50  tests.  So  the  test  kits  shall  last  for  1  your  approx.  
 
 What  is  the  price  for  ammonia,  nitrite,  nitrate,  kh,  PH,  GH,  PHOSPHATE  and  Iron  Kits  which  can  last  for  1  your?  If  I  go  by  the  prices  of  wild  test  kits  on  eBay  India,  it  is  around  4500  rupees!!  Very  expensive.
 
 Instead  i  Would  suggest   'NICE  chemicals'  water  testing  kits  which  r  made  in  india,  cheap,  reliable  n  long  lasting.  These  r  basically  used  to  test  drinking  water  but  company  says  they  can  b  used  for  aquaculture  too.  The  sensitivity  range  of  various  chemicals  matches  very  well  with  aquaculture  ranges.  They  come  in  kits  which  can  be  tested  for  200  times!!(not  50)  plus,  u  get  10%-20%  discount  on  mrp  too.  So  they  last  4  times  longer!  I.e,  for  four  yrs!  They  r  stable  reagents  which  doesn't  ve  any  expiry  date(I  confirmed  this  from  company).  The  total  cost  comes  to  b  only  700  rupees  per  year!!  That  too  including  all  test  kits.  If  u  r  not  using  all  the  kits,  it's  below  500.

 Sorry  for  the  bad  background.  Every  kit  has  reagents,  two  borosil  test  tubes,  measuring  cylinder,  two  droppers  n  one  brush.

 U  can  buy  them  in  any  laboratory  chemical  stores..  nice  chemicals  has  very  good  supply  chain  in  south,  Delhi  n  Mumbai.  Look  wise  kits  may  look  ugly  but  very  cost  effective.

 Absolutely  !!  I  couldn't  believe  my  luck  when  I  found  these   Cheering
 I  agree  they  are  not  as  well  designed  as  their  API  counter  parts,  but  they  are  god-send  for  a  hobbyist  on  budget   Thumb Up
