the nitrogen cycle is :
poop -> ammonia -> nitrite -> nitrate

if we test and there's no nitrate, isnt that conclusive enough?
what you don't want in your tank is ammonia and nitrite.
it is deadly to fish, nitrate is not as bad as ammonia and nitrite.
so ammonia and nitrite test kit would be more important for me.
