Don't waste your money on one. There is very few on the market & they are all exspensive. If you are unsure if the plants are getting enough, just dose some extra potassium.

yeah 50 bucks in the us, by the time it gets to a greedy aquarium shop in Australia it will be like $150
Thanks, I'll keep it in mind when I sell it in the LFS that I own in Western Australia..... :peep: :p

mind you, AUS$150 would sound about right considering freight and exchange rates..... ;)

Thanks for the advice, Lamotte was what I was looking at anyway...
btw, my problem is not not enough, it is too much.... possibly.. that's why I need one...

no fear mate... I get it every day..... and I still have a good sense of humour.....:rolleyes:

cheers,
Oliver

BTW, I am finding it difficult to find someone that can send one test kit to Australia... seems to be a $250 minimum for overseas postage...
anyone know where to get it (retail shop?) or can anyone help out??

thanks in advance,
Oliver

I agree with this. You can easily figure out if your plants have enough or too much simply by looking at them.

Yes, I agree... but I need to prove this... I have been having a discussion with Tom Barr on the subject of K blocking the Ca uptake in some plants and some fish spp going mad in the tank... he feels it has nothing to do with K, but I need to prove it to be sure...

Anyone want my money? I need someone to send me a kit, I can't get anything like it in Australia... and I work in the industry!! even hydroponic and nursery shops don't carry it.
