Overfeeding, over stocking, or poor maintenance habits

It should say 'just dip and get inaccurate results'. Liquid tests are what you should be aiming for.

You shouldn't need that in a reef tank because you should be using ro/di water.

API makes a master test pack. You can get them at any store, find a petco and they'll be there for example.

Well the RO system is at my vacation home and it doesn't work. You turn on the foset and nothing comes out. I can't fix it because its very far from here...
