for me .. if it's been working fine .. why change it up???

if you want to get separate tests ... try these ~ seachem

Seachem nitrate test yields different results from API. In fact, the results seem lower by 5ppm. Nutrafin produces inaccurate results if you have a Ph of 7.5 or higher.

I would try Salifert.

i am thinking of changing because a lot of times the colors are not very clear and while searching i found that a lot of people said that there is more accurate test kits out there but no one specified which one ,
and as for seachem i personally love their products but i have read the instructions on their test kits before and it seems a bit complicated

The most important thing is to know how to use the kit and to use it in a consistent manner . This will give results you can trust . I always do double tests 2 of every thing. If the results are the same you are doing a good job.
