    Ph testing

    Any suggestions on a good testing device for PH. The Hagen tests are crappy the colours arn't anywhere close. Mine turns PURPLE when the comparison chart is green to blue....

    Ivan has the Pen for sale. Anyone use this?

    suggestions?

    I hate chemisty kits...I can never decide which colour it really is.
    I went with a Pinpoint pH monitor and I'm very pleased with it. A little pricy, but it's easy to use.

    Aquaria normally sells them, but I don't see them on the 'drygoods' page anymore. Everything else for pinpoint except the pH monitor. weird.

    Nonetheless, you'll like the pinpoint monitor. It can be set up to monitor your tank all the time. If you do that though, recommend to get the power supply as it will chew thru 9v batteries rather quickly.
