ABC Reagents is an affordable and reliable solution for analyzing aquarium water’s alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium levels. These reagents can be used manually or with select automated testing devices. Its worth pointing out that the supply packs do not include the reference solution which is required to properly calibrate automated testing devices but CoralVue is also recommending you use  Fauna Marina 100 ml reference bottles that can be purchased online or at your local LFS (Local Fish Store).
