After 1 hour later for testing ?

Bfore we add any additives, we have to test for the reading first.
But after dosing, how long do we have to take the reading again ?

What are u dosing?? If your dosing Bionic (alkalinity and bionic) It can skew alkalinity, I usually wait at LEAST 4 hours after feeding or adding anything. What are you testing? Feeding can really add to ammonia and nitrates and phosphates. I usually wait a WHOLE day before i run all the test
