Unhappy Master Test Kit

I bought a master test kit a couple weeks ago. However, after exactly two nitrate tests where the kit worked, it keeps saying that there is no nitrate in the water. I have several fish, and I know the nitrate level is building up. What can I do?

Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

Are you using the wrong card? The liquids are the same for freshwater and saltwater, but the color cards are different. You can't use a freshwater color card for a saltwater tank or vice versa.

Money can't buy happiness.... But I can buy fish, which is kind of the same thing.
