Testing

Was wondering when pulling water for testing should this be done at the surface of just below the surface or where? As I have always pulled the water from the surface and not sure if this is correct. TIA

I really dont think it matters. I get mine from different places in the tank. Maybe someone else has a different scoop.

I agree. Any tank with a 10+ times turnover is going to give the same results regardless of where you take the reading.
