what colour is this ammonia reading?

i’m having trouble reading this ammonia reading the tank is cycled so it shouldn’t have any ammonia the nitrites are zero and the nitrates are between 10-20 i also read that you might see the colour better if you look down the tube instead but idk if that’s accurate so i took pictures of both in natural sunlight

I don't see any green tint. So I'd say it's yellow

Yeah, they are hard to read sometimes. Hard to tell if there's a certain tint occasionally

Test some bottled water. The bottled water should be 0ppm so you can compare it with your tank water.
