Actually I had those exact strips, because I wanted to test my water for hardness and alkalinity, and found the nitrite, nitrate, and pH tests to be fairly accurate. I even did a side-by-side comparison with my liquid test kit. They're not bad, but the liquid kit is still better by a long-shot since it lasts a lot longer.

Stay away from the ammonia test strips though. I've used those and the results are very inaccurate.

Thank u guys and I will eventually get a master kit... This is the best I could do given the budget. At least I have an idea where the water is. And the ammonia test is aliquid so should be accurate and its the most important test no?

They are all pretty important, but ammonia and nitrates are the most worrisome.

Just stay devoted to changing water regularly and frequently.
