I have no idea but it looks totally weird!! Did you count the right number of drops to add and not accidentally use one of the wrong bottles?

Nope, done it to many times with the result of blue...and I mean BRIGHT BLUE. Either my test has gone bad or I have a TON of ammonia in my tank after a week and a half and a PWC...

Getting there. Also, trying something new. I'm going to try to win an acan lord off ebay. See how this goes. If I win one of the ones I'm watching, I'll let you guys know how it arrives.

Yep, def adding the correct amount of drops. Cycle seems to be going well. Barely any ammonia reading, mostly nitrites and nitrates at this point.

Got my acan today. It is sitting quietly at the bottom of my tank. I ordered a ton off of bulkreefsupply. Have my second Radion and a dual reactor. Going to be running carbon and gfo in the 55 once it is fully up and running.

What does carbon and gfo do exactly?

You better post a picture of the acan! I hope she's happy in your tank!

I have another thread for it since the 55 isn't running yet...though thankfully it is on wheels as I moved it across my living room today.
