    I Received my new test kits today made by Salifert one is KH/Alk and the other is Calcium This is the first time I have run these tests on my tank, it has been set up for about 2 months. The problem is there was no color change on either test. do you think that my levels that far off that it is out of range of the kit? :-/

    Yah It works nice when you fill the 1ml syringe to 1ml and not .1 DUH :-[ [smiley=loco.gif] What a dope All I needed to do is crack open a cold one sit down and read the directions again and then feel like an Ass for posting this thread. But what's done is done and all is good now.

    Thanks Guys

    Thanks Jason I know what you mean. Sometimes for me I guess it wouldn't hurt to read them twice :) ;D

    I have to read them every time I test something. Except the cal and alk since I do them so much it is routine now.
