Tanker... that picture is awesome! :-)
OK so I tried one more time and used a stop watch.
Nitrate between 40 and 80
Nitritie 0 (ideal) Caution
PH 7 (ideal)
160??? Are you testing correctly?? Do you have the right tester?? I am surprise there is anything alive in the tank.
OK I just checked it now and it was between 40 and 80. You are supposed to look at the color at 30 seconds. If you wait longer -- it reads higher.
oh well i still am gonna acclimate them just to be safe.
