    Morning

    Which test are you using i.e. Nitrate, Phospate etc...?

    the red sea test kit manual on page 10 shows the High/Low range readings for NO3.

    Using the low range you can measure 0.25 - 4ppm, and when using the high range you can measure from 4-64ppm.

    When using low range, if the reagent color is darker that what is available on the color chart, you need to use High range (I have not used the red sea test kit, but from the manual and other kits it should work like this)

    ive been using the reef foundation and algae management test kit.
    i was getting high alk readings after doing a water change. so i thought that might be making a difference
