That's pretty good, I guess you need some more fuzzy sticks to really make this dosing worth it :p

I'm also going manual
since I normally don't dose anything
just tested again still a bit early though PH went to 7.6
nothing else changed going to wait till 1:30 test again like I normally do
buddy just dropped of his electronic testers now need to figure out how they work
reading directions , only problem is print is so tiny and I'm blind as a bat lol

figured this be a good way to compare
