Seems yellow to me. Besides, you shouldn't consider the color after such a long time, it won't be accurate. Sometimes I don't wash the tubes right away when I test my FW tank, and the yellow turns kinda muddy after a while.
As for the trates, I don't know, hard to tell, but I think the color is more like five-ish, definitely more than 2.

Oh I forgot, the salifert is determined in low resolution by dividing the result color by 10. So 50 is 5, 100 is 10 etc...If you look at it straight down is when you use the numbers on the card and there is no pink at all when I look down.

Hmm... In this case, 2.5 is about right.
But isn't it good if the trates are low? I thought there was another kind of bacteria in SW that converts nitrates to nitrogen gas that then leaves the system?

Yeah, i tested my 55g while I had the kit out and they are almost 2.5 in there too. LOL Yep, if nitrates get converted to nitrogen gases then you are golden. I prob will be starting a thread about low nitrates later, I'm baffled how they can be so low in the 55g.

And wolf, no chance. I would have to break down my entire 55g to get out a half inch fish. silly....LOL
