    I know the test kit says to wait 5 min before reading your sample but is there anything wrong with waiting 20 30 or 60 mins on the test to develop for example will the colors change and read a different level also I find the colors to be more of a guessing game really

    Nothing wrong with that, I'm lazy and leave my test tubes out hours after using before washing them. They stay the same color, and usually I in fact get the correct reading after 1-2 minutes, 5 is just to make sure.

    Welcome to Fishlore! :) Mine starts to change colors some more so I know it's not that accurate. I'm just really impatient and don't like waiting more than 5 minutes for my tests to be done! :)

    Right just curious cause some days I wait the 5 other days I shake it up and get busy doing other things

    The nitrate test always seems to darken more as time passes. None of the others seem to do that.
