Water Testers...

Over 20 years without any use of water testers I finally picked up a test kit after Lunch. Marine Enterprises brand, the LFS recomended it. It's a PH, Ammonia & Nitrite tester.

Okay, I think Ammonia should read 0, but what about Nitrite? Zero also? What about PH, what should that be? The kit ccomes with a positive/negative buffer solution.

What PH do Clown Loaches & Rainbow fish need and want? I have many books with different PH recommendations.

Thanks,

Kevin
