I took tests yesterday. Here's the stats:

Temp: 79
SG 1.023
PH 8.2
Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrates all at zero
Calcium was a little low

I have never seen ANY indication of bad stuff in my water. I find it strange myself but I figured maybe I just got lucky with the combination of LR and Live sand that I put in my tank. I will get another test kit. Any recommendations? Are the little test strips better as opposed to vials?

The test strips are pretty much useless. I recommend salifert test.
