I'm gonna say it's old. Again I your fish are done those results can't be true. Can you pick up a new test tomorrow? It should be light blue(you probably already know that)

I'd buy a new one.

I decided to do a major water change with the results being that my test showed the highest possible lvl. I think I was reading the other color because it was so high. I removed my puffer into my tank that has about finished cycling with very low lvl of nh3.

I was thinking that also. Something is way off.

Not yet but i will try to pick one up tomorrow I did not make it to the store just yet. I was thinking that maybe the test is ok but the levels in the tank were more than 5ppm? I know i probably would have killed the puffer but i don't know. I tested tap water and it turns blue my new tank and it turns blue. I removed the tank anyways that had the problem and moved the fish a little sooner as i was unsure of the level. I did do a major water change and got 5ppm after so i don't know its really odd.

Yeah sounds really odd. I'm so curious to know what's going on.
