Anybody use Seachem Ammonia Alert?

    Hi. I just wanted to see whether anyone uses Seachem Ammonia Alert or has had experience with it one way or another. I have an API master test kit which I use regularly but thought it might be nice to have the constant ability to monitor ammonia to supplement the liquid test kit.

    I use it in my tanks. My main tank is 3 years old and I only use the api master kit if I suspect any problems ( which is the reason I have the alert )

    For anyone else just using the ammonia alert to test, I wouldn't recommend it as they can be unreliable and isn't as sensitive as the api test.

    I do, and am very happy with it. I have it in all my tanks, in fact (Fluval Chi 5-gallon occupied by a male Betta, 3 3-gallon nanos in various stages of cycling). Still use API when I need a reading, but I did find the Seachem very helpful for flagging potential ammonia problems.

    The PH one I did not like, though.
