Over the last seven months, I've observed results of 50+ppm (the color matches [exceeds] the darkest swatch).
However, my LFS has always tested my water as being "acceptable" for fish and softies.
After viewing the recent "BRStv Investigates: How accurate are nitrate test kits...", I decided to try the NYOS Nitrate kit. And it shows a very clear 25ppm. Not great, but obviously far off from the Red Sea test.
Should I assume the Red Sea Nitrate test is fubar?
I appreciate your knowledge and insight.
tested with 4 ml of RO water. Multiply the result by 5 for true nitrate level. "
Hope this helps!
