Out of curiosity did you ever confirm your no3 results with more then one test or with your lfs? IME most no3 tests will read towards the higher end as they age and even slight no3 can give you very high readings in some tests and since your ro/di should have no no3 versus your tank with “some” the two results would be quite different if the test is past it’s expiration date (which most don’t even list )

I like Salifert tests also for accuracy. Never hurts to have the best but also having more then one test kit is important also in my book for comparison reasons.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P

Thanks Micah!

I am going to buy two salifert tests each for NO2, NO3, and Ammonia.

I am also going to take the tank water to the LFS and have it checked out.

I will keep you all posted....

This forum rules compared to some other forums about other things where everyone fights!

Everyone is just here to help!

IMO, after the cycle, NO2 and NH3 are usually stable at 0 so... no need to buy that many test for those 2. Well, if u have money to spend, spend them however u want

I'm one of those fishnutz, who are actually nutz.
