Reef Status Test Kit Magnesium, Carbonate Borate
This product is very accurate, gives consistent readings
I have used the Magnesium, Borate and Carbonate alkalinity tests for about 4 months now. I really like the alkalinity test. Since it's a titration test, the results are much more repeatable than for a colorimetric test alone. It also uses a larger sample volume than most kits I've used in the past, reducing chances of error in the readings.
The magnesium test took a little getting used to, but like the alkalinity tests, it seems to be very repeatable.
For those not used to doing titrations, it only takes a few trial runs to become more comfortable with the procedure. Also using the references supplied with the kit is a good double check if you think your results are off.

Would like to be easier to read
We have tested 3 times with this test kit, we never seem to get the proper reading, we do not get the colors that they say you should get. The testing its self is easy to do by just following the steps listed, its getting the correct color that is difficult, there is such a fine line between colors.
