For a liquid ammonia and nitrate kit I highly recommend Salifert. Hands down more reliable and easier to use than the API ones.
A note about the API ammonia kit; you have to wait 24 hours after using any type of dechlorinator before you can use the api liquid ammonia kit. Otherwise you risk a false reading. The Salifert Liquid Ammonia Kit can be used right after using a dechlorinator, thus making it a far superior product over API. The same can be said for the Seachem Liquid Ammonia Kit.. it can be used right after using a dechlorinator.
Aside from being a more superior product over API, the Salifert liquid kits are much easier to use and by far easier to read the results.
The API Nitrite and pH liquid kits are fine.
Where do you live that you don't have access to API?
