View Full Version : FS/FT Hagen Master Test Kit

12-12-2004, 06:10 PM
I have a hagen master test kit available which includes tests for phosphate, calcium, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, KH, GH, and iron levels, as well as a kit for low range (6.0-7.6) and high range (7.4-8.6) pH levels. Kit was $90 new and I have only used nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia kits a few times. I am accepting cash offers and will also trade for sps corals. Thanks.

I have had the kit for over 1 yr. I had never realized that they had a shelf life. Wish I had known that before it was purchased. When I look inside of each booklet it says best results in first year after opening. The reagents do not come sealed so the life of these kits is really only good for one year after manufacturing, not after opening. Considering stores don't flip these kits very often, the majority of these kits are likely useless when purchased. Oh well.

Dont get me wrong maybe it is a good one ,but the one I had was crap i bought it and the NO-2 and the NO3 were off by alot.
the phosphate were tellign me that i havea huge supply in the tank and i had no algae in the tank so, I dont know what to say.

The Ammonia was off the scales when i bought another one it ws bang on \.

Hope you can sell it , or trade it fora few frags
