Today I tested the ammonia in my tap water and in my new betta's aquarium just to compare the two. The ammonia in my tap water reads about .25ppm while the ammonia in my tank reads close to 0ppm... How is this possible? I got my betta on Tuesday and did not do a fishless cycle and do not have any live plants. Could I have done something wrong when I tested?
I have the API master test kit. Sometimes I find that the results for the ammonia tests are slightly hard to read, but the tap water vial was clearly more green and the tank water vial more yellow. I'm also sure I did not get the two mixed up.
I'm just very confused..
