I’m going to borrow test kits of a different brand and do a comparison. Also might run the calibration on the trident. I was told it comes calibrated but then was told different on this thread.

Calibration

I’ll calibrate it Monday as I’m away this weekend. Then I’ll let it run a week before I interface it with my dos.

Calibration

So followed Bonomo53 advice and calibrated my trident and the numbers came down about 10%. They’re still a little high in comparison to my Red Sea tests but believable. I’ll let it run until Sunday and then set it up to work with my dos. It has shown my levels are very stable which I’m Pleasantly surprised about. But now my issue has been high no3&po4. Haven’t changed anything lately so I’m at a loss. Not going to do anything just yet. Maybe dose some special blend. Scheduled for a water change this weekend anyway. I do them biweekly. But so far I’m happy with the trident. Once it’s working with my dos to regulate levels I’ll give another update. The calibration was super easy. I have to Say it’s been relatively easy to use so far.

Yes I just hooked up the integrated dosing function yesterday. My levels still are a little high compared to Red Sea testing but they’re stable so I’m happy with that. I will post an update after the dos and trident have been working together for a while
