The first color change would indicate 0 on any tank...reason I say this is it goes from 0 up to 40...so it goes from a puke green to light green to medium to dark. I usually wait for about 15 minutes and then take the reading. I guess I dont understand that if I shake the little test vile, it takes about 5 minutes for any color to develope...So what does this mean?
Also yes its a Seachem ammonia badge. I think I may order some Seachem test kits so I will know for sure. I only have about 1 week left in the QT as Im at 1.017...
Also can you answer this. If my main is at 1.023, do I need the QT to match it and then acclimate the QT water to the main?
Thanks!

It means that most likely the test kit is not reading properly due to the Prime additions. Given the fact your using the Ammonia Alert badge and it has not shown any signs of ammonia there most likely isn't any. The badge will read correctly when Prime is being used.

It's best if you bring up the QT to match the main.

Cheers
