Need some help help with Api results .

Here are 2 pics of the same sample ,depending on the lighting ,or how close the the test tube is placed against the paper, the color looks different to me.I am having a hard time figuring out where this would be on the chart .By the way i have no fish in the tank i am just trying to figure out if it is to high, i am trying to cycle the tank using ACE Industrial strength Ammonia.

Hmm I'd use the first picture because you want to compare in a well lit area (:
Looks to me like it's between 1-2 ppm.

For a fish less cycle you want to maintain between 4-6 ppm

Thanks for helping me figure this out ,i will keep checking it to see if it goes down,i want to let it get to 0 and then add a couple of more drops of ammonia. I was trying with fish food ,but that was to hard to control and had to wait for the food to break down.Thanks aqain.

Those tests are a PITA to match color.. would prefer a digital read out. {{sigh}}
