    Hey Guys,
    Being slightly clumsy today I drop and shattered 2 of my glass test tubes in my master test kit out of 4. I will be fine with having 2 left, but was wondering, except from getting a new test kit is there any way I can just go to the store and purchase say a 3 pack of test kits. I'm only interested in paying like tops $3/test tube. Thanks ahead.

    You know you should be able to make your own by measuring the volume of liquid in one of the test tubes you have and marking it in another test tube. It doesn't have to be the same size and shape. I have never seen them sold seperately and I stalk LFS.

    I've searched chemical supply websites, they sell test tubes and stoppers for dirt cheap (~10 for $3). I plan to buy a bunch, and make a holder out of wood for them all, so I can do all my tests at once and not have to repeatedly shake the bottles... :)

    I have moved your thread from Freshwater Beginners to Aquarium Water/Test Kits section of the forum.

    Thanks!
