The master kit only has the one test, which is or ammonia, but I'm not sure why ammonium is on there, it's not even mentioned anywhere in the instruction book...
So I think my kit is broken, either that or the infamous ammonia reading is more difficult than I imagined. I'm getting 0.5 ppm ammonia for tap, conditioned and established cycled tank.
How do you know when it's expired again? My Lot number for ammonia is 84A0311 and 83A0211.
Haven't used any of the other bottles yet, gotta cook dinner soon :P
thank you Mick, if your ammonia kit is broken them mine probably is halfway there. same lot numbers so far ive used betta conditioner with some goldfish conditioner to deal with ammonia. when the betta conditioner runs out i'll get my prime conditioner open for use and get the api master kit to check for nitrites. nutrafin master test kit is a funny thing, it tests for kh, gh, ca and po4. i dont think API has that in its master kit.
