Question Ammonia testing kit residue in tank water (i think)

I think some of the residue from the ammonia testing kit has gotten into the tank I'm cycling. The water has an oily sheen on the top of it. Will I have to take all the water out and start all over again?

This oily sheen can come from a variety of sources--especially if your ammonia source is food, or a piece of shrimp. If you dumped a lot of the ammonia testing solution in there, there might be cause for concern, but if it was only a tiny bit, I wouldn't worry.

I think I just didn't rinse my test tube out enough so some got in there. I'm worried because the tank is only 3g and the bottles of solution says that they're corrosive.
