    Hey yall. Need some help, I have been testing my waters and am getting drastically different results from each of them. Example, I have the api test strips that are reading nitrate 80, nitrite 0, ph 8.5, kh 240. Now just did the api saltwater master kit and got nitrate 0, nitrite 0, ph 8.2 , and ammonia 0.50. Now I'm starting the salifert kits and my nitrate is 50ppm. I'm working on the rest of my tests now but I'm freaking out!! Any advice???

    I'm just gonna say it, API is garbage. Readings from the Salifert test kits are going to be a lot more accurate.

    Thank you! I have everything except ammonia on salifert so I'll just use those. I'm so confused and scared.
