    can any, kind-hearted, fellow Living Reefers post a picture of their water test results for me? just a picture of the test tube like Little Fish did in her sticky?
    i must be color blind because i can never decide which color my tube belongs to.
    thanks for the help

    LOL I have the same issue with my PH test, it always seems so thin and watery looking compared to the sheet they give me. I think its probably lower than it should be because a good PH looks really dark purple.

    Are your tubes different colors? My test kit has all standard glass tubes.

    Wait, I think I get it - you put the drops in already, and now you're not sure which colored tubes match up with the cards.

    When I do it I always put the tube on top of the card (if there is a card) to wait the five minutes (or whatever) so I remember what goes with what...

    No, actually. I know which tube goes with which card. I just can't match up the colors (the level of what im testing).
    Im wanting to compare with others.
    I forgot to mention I have the standard api master test kit
