If the tank has been running for years, I'd be concerned about what caused that spike. Big die off, lots of livestock added at once, over feeding, or detritus buildup maybe?

I don't know why in there's a spike in the ammonia and nitrites, I have not a huge amount of livestock at once. Although I did have a fish die about a month or two ago, but I don't think that would cause a huge spike.

It would concern me...if you know someone else with the tests, I would use theirs to check if yours has just gone bad.
