I know because it is right about my water and I have a test kit so I have both I trust them I would replace it every couple of years or if it gives you a wrong answer and you just tested your water. :smile:

What does ammonia have to do with water changes once the tank is cycled? I agree that an ammonia sensor would be useful, but not as a sign to do a water change, maybe a nitrate sensor.

I used one (ammonia)while cycling my tank a while ago and it changed collor(I forget what color) but never turned back once the ammonia was gone.

Hey my little nephew has this in his 20 gal tetra/shark tank. I dont think this item would be sufficient in a propper P tank, but would be good for community and smaller fish. I deffinately wouldnt use this for image reasons and the drastic uncontrollable changes in the water perimeters when owning the kind of fish we have... Just wouldn't be accurate for our tanks.

So is it not good for a piranha tank but still work on a community tank?

MAD
I just think that theres more amonia/nitrate level producing in our tanks. How much can your water perimeters/balance increase and/ordecrease rapidly in a piranha tank versus a community tank?
