I bought some stuff from Dr Foster and I just tagged this one on with the order.

Anyone use them? Work ok??


Mardel at Dr Foster (http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Product/Prod_Display.cfm?pcatid=14790&Ntt=ammonia&Ntk=All&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Np=1&N=2004&Nty=1)


I added 50lbs of un-cured smelly live rock to my 120gal tank
Already had 50lbs of 6 week old Live rock (lots of macro algae growth)
200+ lbs of live sand

I am on Day 3 of the latest live rock
I have the meter in the sump area
The meter says 0 ammonia... never changed color at all

I've never used one, but it says at the end "For freshwater aquariums. "

SeaChem makes one for ammonia in seawater but not pH.

Is it worth it?

I suppose this one I bought is not working correct then...

I couldn't say if the one you have works correctly in seawater or not.
