QUESTION:* Level Results changed over night?????

I left my results from last night in the test tubes and it changed...... is it because it's old or did I not wait long enough to read results last night?
Now they are.....

PH - 7.4
Ammonia is pretty much - 0 (yellowish)
Nitrite -0
Nitrate - 5.0

I'm not sure about what happens to results after a long period of time, but if you've followed the directions and waited the 5 minutes for all of the tests except for Ph (which is an instant result), I would go with that and not worry about what it says after leaving it over night. It's probably the chemicals settling or something like that.

Just follow the directions and compare your results to the color chart after the 5 minutes (or immediately if it's the pH test). Anything that it changes to after that is not relevant and does not portray accurate info about your tanks parameters.
