Test strips are generally not reliable at all. A better bet would be a test kit with liquid reagents, such as the API master kit.

Walmart carries a liquid kit on their online store that is identical to the trusted API kit for about 20 bucks.

Ya, I agree with them. I would use an API test kit. I have the API Master Test Kit from Petsmart. I think Walmart sells the same kit. They last for a really long time so it's worth the money.

Does walmart sell it in their stores? Or do I have to order online? Are they usually at aquarium section or some other part of the walmart?

I wasted $23 for two different strip test kits at walmart near aquarium section. And both can only last 25 tests. They were the only test kits I saw at walmart at aquarium section.

I haven't seen it in the store, but they do ship to home. I've actually ordered from them in the past using one of their own prepaid moneycards because I didn't have a debit card at the time. The only liquid tests I've found have been in actual pet stores, and usually end up being $30+
