Water Test

These are my results. Are fish ready for the tank? The test kit came with two Ammonia and the first bottle made the water turn a milky color so I used the second and got clear.

Recheck ammonia. Doesn't look right. Should be a yellowish/light green color.

These are what I got for ammonia. Could it be that both of the bottles have expired?

you use both bottles in the same tube. i can tell your not using both in the same tube by not being enough liquid in them lol

The milky one looks ok. But it shouldn't turn clear... That's weird...

Looks good to me. You already had an ammonia spike and nitrite spike right?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The test kit just came in yesterday and we weren't able to test until this morning. The tank has been setup for a week and a half and the shrimp was in the tank for a week.
