    Test before treating with phosphate removers
     
     
    Pros:
    Accurate readings
    Cons:
    color stains plastic test tubes
    I knew I had high phosphates (based on the slight haze), but didn't know how high. While higher phosphate readings aren't too dangerous for freshwater fish, you still want nice clear water. Before doing any phosphate removal, I test with my test kit. The dark blue color (when phosphates are too high) stains that plastic tube I use (I like using the plastic square tubes I received with another company's test kits) - so I have one tube designated for phosphate tests. I only test phosphate levels a couple times a month (3 freshwater aquariums) - just to make sure my phosphate removing resins are doing their job. While I don't have anything to compare it to, I feel confident I am getting an accurate reading as I have used many of API's other test kits with 100% success.
