i have an api liquid test kit and when i had it before all the colour cards were seperate now they are all on one chart. But how can you possibly tell what colour 5ppm of ammonia is lol it could be 10 and be the same colour! Only put about a teaspoon in but im assuming its around 5. Damn thing lol

I havent seen the new test chart phishy but I hav posted elsewhere a photo of the old charts if that helps. Just aim for 4ppm because there is a definate colour for that.

If you try for 5 you risk overdosing and slowing down the cycle

did a small water change and it reads very slightly darker than 4ppm and am now happy this is around 5 lol but will leave it a day or two to cycle some more and test it again
