There is now an alternative and compatible brand of testing reagents for automated testing systems thanks to the guys over at CoralVue. The reagent packs are available in 2 month, 4 month and 6 month supply packs. ABC Reagents are an affordable and reliable solution for analyzing aquarium alkalinity, calcium and magnesium levels which are critical for coral health, coloration and growth. The reagents can be used manually or with “select” automated testing devices such as the Neptune Systems Trident.

These reagents can be used manually or with select automated testing devices. Its worth pointing out that the supply packs do not include the reference solution which is required to properly calibrate automated testing devices but CoralVue is also recommending you use Fauna Marina 100 ml reference bottles that can be purchased online or at your local LFS (Local Fish Store).
