Just for SusanA

Hi SusanA. Everything tested great. No Ammonia or Nitrite, and Nitrate is under 10. pH remains about 7.6+, not really sure. I have such trouble reading it.

My chart only goes up to 7.6. If I hold the tube to the paper it looks darker; if I hold it back and look through it it looks lighter.

Anyway, it's all blue. There's a hint of green in the tap water so I'm calling that 7.4

BTW on my trip I read about 40 pages I printed from http://faq.thekrib.com/begin.html and certainly learned a lot. Including why using pH-Down is a losing battle!

Thanks for all your help so far. Tomorrow I plan to visit a minimum of six LFSs looking at fish, heaters, lighting and thermometers. And bigger tanks!

Then I go back to the one with the best fish and get my three. Then I'll post about the other equipment and get help deciding what to purchase. I aint doin nothin on my own ever again!
