About Me

Found 8 results

  1. I’m trying to figure out what this reads it looks between 20-40 but it also looks like 160ppm witch makes no scene because I changed the water on Friday
  2. Has anyone found a better cap for the API test tubes? There's a lot of capping and uncapping for the two part and titration tests that it actually starts to hurt my fingers. Frankly I'd take a cap that doesn't even hold itself on and just pinch the cap down when shaking over how tight these are.
  3. Does api test kit being expired change the results of test?
  4. A few hours after properly dosing ( based on directions) my planted tanks with Seachem Flourish, Searchem Nitrogen, (and Flourish Excel though it should be irrelevant), my API test kit indicates 0 ppm of nitrates. Should this be the case? If not, perhaps could it be a problem with the test kit?
  5. I purchased a 60 gallon fish tank off of nextdoor a month or two ago and it came with a bunch of stuff including an API Freshwater Master Test Kit. They didn't have the expiration date (only a lot number) on them so I figured they were fine, but after a few months of testing (Also logging it on Google Sheets) I started to notice a ton of weird results. For example the pH test would be a different color every time I tested it. I decided to reach out to API to see if they were expired, this is what they said So all of my water parameter data and diagnosing for the past few months is wrong because the API Master Test Kit I have is expired. I feel like such a fool, but I figured I'd share this will all of you so someone else doesn't go through this.
  6. I have an issue with my tendentious where shaking the nitrate bottle just isn't feasible for me, I will suffer all week with pain in my arm now from it. I actually went to test strips for a long time, now I'm finally out and down just to my master test kit, which I really want to use, but I can't seem to get myself to as it is self-inflicted pain. I'm really looking for suggestions here. I'm watching my nitrates a lot as I have a lot of newly established tanks, and I need to keep an eye on it to make sure I get the right water change schedule and volume going right. Any suggestions? Should I just give up and deal with test strips (I know they aren't as accurate, but I just don't know what else to do - and tbh, I've not noticed that much of a difference in them when I compare the liquid kit).
  7. Do people actually shake for the times recommend on the nitrate test? I can't bring myself to do it!
  8. I have a API master test kit and I was wondering if they ever expire? How long does it take to expire? I ask this question because I just realized today that the test kit that I have is from 2008!🤣 I think it might definitely be expired but I’m not sure.
