Old test kit found. Still good?


Recommended Posts

I found this old test kit in my "Tub of fish stuff". All the bottles expired 2017. Are they still ok to use? Or don't waste my time. I am headed to the Co-Op here in a couple hours. Was gonna test my water before I go. I normally don't test and honestly neglect my tanks until something doesn't look right or something dies. I want to be better at not doing that I figure better regular maintenance and regular testing is probably a real good start at being better with my water pets and their habitats.

So do I use the old test kit or don't bother and get testing stuff later from the store?

The reagents do go “bad”. Honestly whatever result it gives you can’t be trusted. 
I’m envious your near the Coop! Pick up the strips when your there. I think they work pretty well, though I’m with you on the testing department. That’s prob why one pack of strips seems to be lasting me a looooonngg time.
