I'm waiting for my tank to cycle, I have 2 fish in it now. I have been having my LPS test my water but I'd like to do it myself if I can get a kit for a reasonable price. Any suggestions on which kit I should get and where to get it? The one my LPS has is $40.00. Is that reasonable?

Get the API freshwater kit, and the API GH/KH kits. It'll give you everything you typically need. You don't need all of it for cycling, but you should know the pH, and KH of both your tap and tank and know your fish's requirements. Comes to about $36 with shipping. What is he offering for $40?
