iím having trouble reading this ammonia reading the tank is cycled so it shouldnít 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 thatís accurate so i took pictures of both in natural sunlight

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

i was so unsure i think it might just be the way my eye is seeing the colour against the paper one second i thought it was green the other i thought 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.
