Pretty good fidelity, but not the best kit available featured

Comments compared to the other redsea calcium test kit, this is the real deal. It will provide high enough fidelity results to make informed decisions on calcium supplementation on your tank. If you can find it for the right price, it's definitely worthy of consideration, but I still prefer the salifert brand if their both found for a similar price.


Liked about it This is a good test kit that provides fidelity down to about 10ppm of calcium, which is about as good as any kit on the market. For redsea, it's certainly the exception that their results are on par with other, higher end brands. The kit comes with all the necessary hardware to perform the tests.


Didn't like A few complaints about the overall kit. First, the instructions are a bit unclear, and the hardware doesn't always lend itself to an easy test to perform. It recommends avoiding getting air bubbles when drawing in the final reagent, but this can be a challenge due to the design of the syringe. I prefer the salifert brand due to the simplicity of that brand's test. Also, the packaging of this product is frustrating, I prefer a more open box that I can reuse in lieu of this unit which requires reassembly for storage.

Clean and easy Calcium test

Comments This calcium test exceeds my expectations. It reads very accurately and easily. It has an expiration date on the box, so you know when it needs to be used by for optimal readings. The color change is VERY VERY easy to see and the price is right too. The directions are a cinch to read and make testing easy.


Liked about it Color change is easy to see.
Everything is included.
Box flips down to hold everything nice and neat.
Syringes are included to make measuring a LOT easier.
syringes have add ons that make dosing one tenth of a ml easy.


Didn't like 11 steps to follow, almost need a water break throughout the test.
Time consuming.
Sent an extra cup that I cant figure out what its used for, it was quite frustrating, you only really need the test tube that is also included.

Very pleased

General This test kit exceeded all of my expectations. The instructions were the first thing that impressed me, they are very clear and easy to follow. Red Sea also includes a color chart for both before and after the test. This will help to ensure that you did the test correctly. The step by step coverage is excellent and it was just as accurate as any other Ca kit I own.
Although this kit costs about 1/2 the price of some other Calcium test kits, keep in mind that this kit will do only 25 tests. Others will offer up to 100 Ca tests in one box.
My overall impression of this test kit was very good. I give it an "A". I would certainly buy this product again.


Liked about it Instructions are clear and straight forward
Very easy to perform test
Seemingly accurate and repeatable results


Didn't like Kit contains only 25 tests
Getting all of the components back into the box can be a challenge
