    Hi All - I've got the Salifert Magnesium test kit and just don't like it. Can anybody recommend a good test kit, that ain't so finicky. Thanks

    I use the salifert test kits. Not too expensive and easy to use

    Salifert is my choice, get the most consistent/credible results.

    Ok, guess I'll force myself to figure it out. Part of the problem is that the syringe markings have rubbed off. Any idea on where to find a replacement syringe that's marked for 0.01ml and will take the pink cap?

    Red Sea Pro is what I use. I like it. Easy to use titration method. It is BRS recommended. Rated about 4.75 stars out of 5 over 31 reviews.

    This might help, at least with the measurement. Not sure about the “pink cap”

    Dosing Syringes
