I decided to buy a water test kit to test it myself instead of always going to the store, since I'm working on finding an issue with my 5g tank.
My tank has been running for about two weeks now. I tested the water, but is anyone using the Hagen test kit instead of API? I'm a bit confused with the charts meaning. They're in mg/L.
For ammonia: 0.0 - 7.3 mg/L
For nitrites: 0.0 - 3.3 mg/L
For nitrates: 0.0 - 110.0 mg/L
Here are my results on the chart:
Temperature is at 79f.
Is it safe to put my betta and start the cycle? I kept him in a bowl for now, the last time I got it checked at the store, the lady told me the water was perfect, but it was about a week ago.
