Always the first question. How old is your test kit?

Then, had you tried any other test kit or had it tested as a shop? To confirm if your test kit is giving the right results.

I've used their calculator before and also found it to be erroneous at times. Try using the reef calculator instead to get a ballpark.

Dont use the component to increase your values, rather use the dry powder to increase values. Try that on their calc.

I have been using AF 123 for the past few years and wont change unless they duck out of the country
