    High Range PH

    I suggest emailing API and asking if they could send you the appropriate color cards. I am sure they would have no problems with doing so.

    I definitely agree with Amphiprion, but if you need to do any tests in the mean time these will give you a rough idea of where your perameters are at, but I wouldn't rely 100% on these shades because holding the original cards up to the screen and comparing them to the pic they were very slightly off. Oh and it looks like my scanner cut off the highest or darkest shade of each card but your tank shouldn't be anywhere near those colors anyway.

    I lost a color card in the past for an API test kit. They sent me a free replacement, no questions asked. I'd definitely recommend getting in touch with them.

    I just memorize the color I need it to be to have perfect water conditions....if it changes off that color I know I have a problem to deal with.

    I could never memorize what colors my test needs to be.

    Im sure API would gladly mail you the new color cards. They are a great company.

    As my toddler says "Red is BAD MOMMY! Blue is good! Yellow is good. Red is BAD!" (edit: We're freshwater, where blue IS good)
