Help with testing, So the the Ammonia is very close to 0 and I need help with the Nitrite reading since I am colorblind. The first photo is a test with my dechlorinated tap water, and the second is my tank after a 50% wc earlier today. Are the nitrites dangerously high? Thanks in advance!

The image is low definition and small, so I can't read it very well. If the second line is nitrates, then your nitrates are third color from right of the paper. I think it says 1.2 or 1.4 but I can't see it well. Either way, any nitrites above 0 are dangerous. Do you have prime to dose into the tank?

I feel you man. colorblind as well. Always have to get my wife to look at the colors.

My guess is nitrites are between 1 and 3 ppm. Are you cycling a tank right now?

Maybe put in a bit of extra prime. If you have any nitrites at all, its not good. If you have inhabitants of the tank, its a good idea to use prime.
