API Nitrate test kit: maybe I'm colorblind, but...

Doing nitrate checks on my tanks this morning and, once again, I was struck by how hard it is to see the difference between the 10 and 20ppm colors. In the end, I was left thinking... "ehhhh, looks okay."

2x20-longs, one heavily planted. Platy rancher. They. Won't. Stop. Breeding.
