just a question here, but has anybody actually tested API against a known level of nitrates?? i know that people have tested them side by side with other "more accurate" test kits. but has anybody actually done a benchmark test on API?

I have found API's calcium test to be absurdly off. It was telling me i had a calcium level of 700 with no dosing. Salifert was giving me a 420.

Not sure, especially if you aren't witnessing any aggression. How about fin rot? it could be a disease.
