Have you done anything to the tank recently? New fish? Plants? Chemicals?

Most lfs use test strips. You really need to get a liquid test kit if you are going to be a responsible fish keeper.

IME with LFS doing water testing, they generally don't do it right.. API Master test kit I'd recommend.

£30 ish I think.. Really worth the money IMO, try amazon. I would never use test strips.

The usually test wrong. You need your own liquid test kit.
