    I noticed that for SOME reason my Hagen Master kit has different sized bottles of chemicals of which a large and small bottle require the same amount of drops. Obviously i'm going to run out of the small at least twice as fast as the large.

    So, where do I order individual replacement chemicals?

    I have the same test kit... i dont think you cant buy the individual bottles but you can buy (lets say your running out of the nitrate chem) the nitrate chems alone... i saw them at prety much any fish store.

    Hope it helps

    Hmm.. that's not good. Are all of these chemicals generic that I can just purchase a replacement of any of them?

    I believe they are packaged in different sized bottles so that they run out at the same time. Or the same amount of Chem is in each bottle they just package them differently for ease of Identification.
    I have used Hagen test and never ran out of one bottle before the other

    For what it's worth, you might try contacting Hagen.
    When I needed some new SeaChem calcium reagent, I wrote them an email and they sent me some free of charge.

    Ok, so i finally realized that the tip of the smaller bottles is smaller, thus the surface tension can't hold to it as long and it makes smaller drops. So 7 drops from a big bottle and 7 drops from a small bottle should last the same if they are proper ratio drops to the capacity of the bottles.

    Shouldn't get out of sync :).

    Maybe with the ones that you "add until ... " though.
