no, nothing was transferred, this was a fishless cycle with all new equipment. Im stumped, i just checked again this morning and all is zeroed...

I was thinking a bad test kit too, but I checked the main also at the same time and with my main my Nitrates were about 10ppm so I did a water
change there and retested the QT and received a zero with no water change. Im going to take some water to my LFS
and see what they get.
EDIT: I just looked at my kit and it starts at 5ppm and thats what is showing in the test tube.
I dont know, is this QT ready to be used after a PWC
