The API freshwater master test kit is the one that is usually recommended. The test strips aren't accurate.

I have an amonia test and some test strips by Api. I think both of them together cost almost $30.00. I couldn't afford the better tests kits...but they're far more superior if you have the money.

The API freshwater test kit IS rather on the expensive side.
