This product does not change the water quality.

It TELLS you the water quality, but not changes it.

You can buy products (by API or otherwise) that changes the water quality.

answer 2
No, this kit only tests the water parameters. It contains no corrective powders or liquids. However it does contain a chart to show which product you need to correct your problem (API products since this is an API kit and the competition for brands is fierce).
A general warning, do research on any chemical before you introduce it to your fish's water.

Nope, this is just a test kit, but there are ways to change the water parameters through a variety of commercially available and common products (i.e., baking soda to raise pH) or water changes (i.e. nitrates).

This product does not change your water levels, it can only indicate what the levels of your water are for ph, ammonia, nitrite, or nitrate. You DO NOT put this product into your tank! It would likely kill all of your inhabitants. It is only to be used in the glass test tubes it comes with to test your tank water.

No but there is a chart that shows what you can do for every reading you get. If something is too high or low.

No , this is a test kit only . The best way to get your water parameters back to normal and keep them normal is to do Partial Water changes .

NO, this is a testing kit, you do not add anything to your tank. You take water out of the tank to be tested. Never add any of the drops from the test kit to your tank.

This kit does not test the Gh or KH . Only tests (1) Ammonia (2) Ph and high Ph (3) NitrIte and (4) NitrAte .

Question

What is this Product, API or something else?

Is this API or another brand like the picture and are there 4, 5, or 6 tests the descrition says 6 the comment below it, it says 4 and the reviews say 5. I'm curious what actually do you get, is this something new? I know walmart use to carry the api brand kit in the store but I can't find it any more is this it's replacement?

This is by API. You get Four Tests, Ammonia, pH, Nitrite, Nitrate.

You get, however, seven bottles.

2 for Ammonia,
2 for pH (one regular, one High Range)
2 for Nitrite
1 for Nitrate

I know that you can buy separate bottles of at least the normal range pH, and I'm sure, depending on your walmart, you could buy separate bottles of the tests kits.

answer 3
I just ordered and got a new one. It is API. You can test LOW pH, HIGH pH, Ammonia, Nitrate, and Nitrites. Technically, I'd call that four, but I suppose you could call it five. One (or maybe more) of the tests are two-part, with two solutions, so that may be the source of the confusion.

answer 4
Yes, it's the API brand. There are not 6 tests. There's 5. It's high range pH, pH, nitrate, nitrite, & ammonia. Two of the tests require use of two bottles. It comes in a sturdy plastic black "case" rather than the white one shown.

Yes this is the API brand that tests for Normal Range PH, High Range PH, Ammonia, Nitrites, and Nitrates. My box looks different that what is pictured here. It has a clear top and a black plastic bottom tray. It is the API brand. Maybe walmart.com just has an old pic or something.

answer 6
It is API. You get 7 bottles total for 5 tests. Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, PH and high range PH. The kit is not the one pictured, but similar. The base is black and not two rows of three but square with a divider in the middle four bottles on one side and back to back the other side has three with the four tubes.
