[UK] API Test Tube Alternatives

devsi

I currently have the API Master Test Kit for tropical tanks, however four test tubes for four tanks isn’t exactly great :)

I can buy replacements but they’re £1 a pop, which isn’t exactly cheap.

What have people bought as a cheaper alternative? I find the 5ml fill line incredibly useful, so it would ideally have that; if API are the only ones that have it, I’d happily spend the extra for the convenience but thought it worth asking first :)

Bonus question: what do you use to hold the test tubes? I cut some holes into a bit of wood, which is ok but you can imagine it’s not great as the wood gets wet. Has anybody found something decent that can be purchased?

Thanks :)

There’s a thread here about tricks and tips where people have made all sorts of holders for the tubes , even using a deep piece of styrofoam . I believe someone on that thread said they’d purchased plastic api tubes which is handy because I’ve broken a few of the glass one …
