Parameters to test for salt water shrimp

Recommended Posts

I keep shrimp in a saltwater tank.  I bought the API saltwater test kit and test for pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.  I have a thermometer in the tank.  I have a good quality instrument for testing salinity.  I notice that some people talk about various other parameters, such as TDS, kH and I think some others.  Do I need to test additional parameters  beyond the 4 in the API kit?  Is there a good kit that will allow test of all of the additional ones?
