I use liquid test kits they cost more money but they are far more accurate plus you can test indivual ie. PH..Ammonia ..Nitrites...
I have a test kit for each one....I use the AquaOne test kits....

I prefer liquid test kits, I've used test strips but found them to be inaccurate.

I find the strips good for a quick check up to see what's what, then other liquid tests for more accurate results
