LOL I have been its just in my mind I see a tinge of green. I'm thinking I'm paranoid. I know when I post shots of the tests people dont have the new card they are using their memory of the master kit card.

So is it just me? I wish I had some salifert test kits for ammonia left, I just know they would be 100%. It's over an hour ride to get one though.

I think it's just you. If all your tanks are reading the same then I would say you are ok. I'm red/green colorblind so I have no idea what that test reads.

Yeah I'de be on my third ammonia test this year. lol The first master kit I bought had expired ammonia bottles, so I got replacements from petco then I ran out so i bought the single api test kit.

I got paid today maybe I can take a journey. lol I was wanting to buy gobies instead of handing over $20-25 for a test kit. Maybe I can bring my water in for testing to a lfs? Still an hour trip though...

Why is everything so darn complicated sometimes?

I think we are all paranoid when we look at these tests sometimes at home I'm always asking second opinions and going outside to look at the test in day light lol

I don't think anybody suggested doing a control test on the water that you know is ammonia free, like new ro water or newly mixed salt water. If the color is the same you're safe, if it's yellower you know you're in trouble.
