I haven't seen much change in the ammonia readings this week. This has me concerned. I will report back this weekend with more test conclusions. What should I do if my ammonia doesn't drop to .25 ppm?

So, there is still some ammonia hanging around. However, I am showing some Nitrites!! I think that means I'm finally getting somewhere. Yay!!

If the Nitrites get really high, do I do a WC or do I add a couple drops of ammonia?

Well here it is. So color you can relate to. This picture was taken at time lapse of 6:00 min since the tests started. Of course, you know that the Nitrate test take a little bit longer, with all the shaking you have to do. While the ammonia and Nitrite tests were 1 minute over, the Nitrate test still had 3 minutes to sit.

Anyway, here is a pic !!

So I added 5 drops of ammonia 2 days ago when I posted my last test results. Today I am posting more test results. This picture was taking at 5 minutes into testing with 1 minute to go on Nitrite and 3 minutes to go on Nitrate. Should I add 3 more drops as it looks like ammonia is approx. 1.0 ppm again
