Clowns tend to ride out water issues pretty good. Helps to settle the tank a bit

i did a water test ammonia-0 nitrite-0 nitrate-0
ph-8.2
does that mean my test strips are more inacurate than before? they said my ntrates where 20ppm so is my alkalinity test lying also? could i finally add a clown fish?

API KH/DH liquid test would work. There's also a Salifert KH/alkalinity test. I ordered mine online. Test strips are very inaccurate.
