I've always used API for ammonia, and I always interpret that color as zero.

Cured live rock?

According to API, the "correct" way to interpret the reading is to put the tube on the card on the white space beside the colors, in bright light. That being said, im red and green color blind, so i have a very hard time reading them lol... i agree, looks 0 or at least very close
