I just got this in the mail (finally), and have been reading the instructions. I'm confused about one thing....the info on some of the tests refer to "test color chart is the appropriate chart to use for testing freshwater aquariums to which salt has been added."
Uhhh...I'm still a real newbie, and don't remember reading anywhere about adding salt to the aquarium. And how can some tests be for "salt added" and some not?
Just ignore that. It reads the freshwater levels without any salt added, unless you got the saltwater kind. Which is different because the whole salt thing just affects the chemistry of the water a bit. So there are different kits, but for the freshwater you DO NOT have to add salt. Does that make sense? I think I babbled too much...
Thanks for the info, AquaKai. I did get the "freshwater" kit, so I'll go check out my "cycling" tank now. And don't worry about babbling (which I don't think you did). I'd rather have things spelled out well, since every bit of this new betta-mama stuff is freaking me out!
