Huh. I must have apis older kit. It is a couple years old. Your ammonia color chart is much easier to read than mine. My 0 is like a beige and .25 is a very light green and it's hard to tell the difference sometimes.

Edit: how long do you think we should mix ibrahim? Im not sure how i will be able to tell, besides better clarity
6 hours sounds good with a powerhead or 12 hours with occasional stirring with out a powerhead

From the picture it looks like .25 is kinda dark then .5 is a little lighter? Then it gets darker again as it goes up? Idk. Kinda looks like .5 to me. But I'm just looking at my phone. Either way it ain't zero. Maybe just wait to do the water change till the morning.
