I just watched this and I was going to change from the Red Sea kit but think I will stick with it now.
Interesting that the computer check was rubbish until they made a set of parameters and used the Red Sea reagents 😂

Very interesting indeed!  I'm almost out of Nitrate tests, so will be buying the Red Sea one I think.

Intersting, but nonetheless quite puzzling why he chose to ditch probably the most commonly used nitrate test without even attempting to get some readings with it. If it's truly difficult to read it would have shown up in the numbers.

I'm sure he said he has trouble telling the difference between the colours, not really a fault with the kit but more his eyes, so not fair to include it and potentially show a poor set of tests.

Who knows why they dropped it, they weren't bothered about showing how poor the machine was
