Morning! I checked the ammonia levels with both strips and api test tube test. The strip showed it at max and the vial after adding the 8 drops showed a clear result. Least the milky color is gone.
I'm gonna go to a SW
store later and try to do a test on my water in front of them and then have them do it and see what happens. lol
The tank the rock and sand came out of a break down of a 300 gallon tank. I saw the tank, and the rock was in big metal bins with skimmers inside. Live in Florida so he kept it outside on the screened in lanai.
I know I sound like an idiot if I cant check a water sample, I swear I'm doing it right. I used to have multiple tanks years ago and never had this issue.
Thanks everyone! I look forward to more questions and answers to my noob questions.
