You count the drops for each test and then in the booklet there will be a conversion. For example, if it took 5 drops for the water to change color for the gh test, you would check the results section of the instructions and read what 5 drops equalled to. Make sense?

1 drop = 1 dKH = 18 KH in ppm. There is a chart in manual that shows what ranges are good. I think 150 is good for most tropical comm fish.
