ATI or Triton ICP?

Getting ready to test and wondered if ATI and Triton are comparable, or if one is superior?

There's also Marinlab (Aquaforest) , I don't think one is better than the other. But IMO if you go with one stick with that brand as they all test out differently.

They all have accuracy troubles with trace elements. Is there a specific problem that you are trying to solve? Usually, these tests are fairly inconclusive.

Thanks guys.

No specific problem. The tank has had live rock forever and the kinks are finally worked out-it seems like a good idea to see if anything is way out of whack before adding coral. Also, It would be interesting to check hobby kits against ICP.

The ICP numbers for calcium, potassium, and magnesium generally seem reasonable.

Just so your aware Marinlab (AquaForest) also offers the 2 pack test for tank and RODI water. Just so you know there is that option as well.

Thank you for this.
But I already ordered my ati kit.
Marinlab looks pretty good. I will probably try them too.
