Less than Salifert, just as good featured

Comments I have a bad habit of overfeeding my fish, a habit that I love and don't plan on stopping. My fish all take food right from my hand and this brings me great pleasure. So, I started running PhosBan to help counteract my terrible but enjoyable habit. Along with the use of PhosBan comes the important need to check for phosphates in order to know when to change out the product. For years Salifert has been the gold-standard in home testing, but it can be pretty costly. That's when my local fish shop suggested ELOS. It was about $5 less, and just as accurate.

The kit comes with a syringe, to fill the test vile (which is made of glass, not plastic), two reagent droppers, and an easy to read color card.

Doing the test is very easy, just put the right amount of water (10 ml) in the vile, drop in two drops of A, and two of the B reagents, put the stopper on the vile and shake for 2 minutes. One that's done remove the stopper from the vile, set it on a white part of the color card, look down from above and compare the color and unlike other test kits it was EASY for me to tell which color mine was.

I will buy ELOS test kits from now on as the money savings is well worth it. When you consider that savings over all the types of test kits you get we're talking $100 less than salifert (meaning $5 off for each element adds up)!


Liked about it 1. Costs less than competing brands.
2. Accurate to .05 ppm.
3. Color is easy to read.
4. All glass test vile.
5. Reagent bottles are droppers meaning no waste.


Didn't like 1. You check the color from above which means my big head cast a shadow. This was a minor issue, I just got out of the way but if you aren't thinking about it you might get annoyed.

Great Test kit Easy to use.

Comments I consider this kit in the same line as a Salifert test kit which until now i have used exclusively during my Reef keeping. This test is a two step process and an easy to read color chart (not like others) the chemical are added to the sample water via a dropper not a syringe.


Liked about it very easy to use, easy to read color chart, only two chemicals to mix no complex syringes and ML reading.


Didn't like Instructions are in every language except US (I had to read the uk version which is do-able) a little spendy price was $35.00 scoots US.
