I am curious if anyone here is familiar with what chemicals are used for each of the primary water tests (in particular, thinking about the API test kits).

Nitrate?
Ammonia?
kH?

I tried Wikipedia for Nitrate tests, and they describe 3 different common tests, but none of them sound like they're likely to be what is used in the API kit.

Thanks. This is primarily out of curiosity, not related to any particular urgent need :)

I think that information is probably a secret, If it wasn't people could go buy the chemicles for $0.50 and not buy the kit.

API's scientist is a member of my local aquarium club, and if I asked him what the chemicles are, he would probably tell me "bottle #1 and bottle #2" :lol:
