Liquid tests units?

  1. moonraingirl Member Member

    My JBL (German company) liquid tests for N02 and NO3 arrived on Friday and I noticed that they use different units compared to units I see here? http://www.sklepna5.pl/akwanawozy/zdjecia/305/img_7947-skalajpg.jpg
    In the tests, results are in units with max number 1, whereas online I always see results like 20 or 30 ppm.
    Should I just move the decimal and consider result 0.2 in this test the same as 20 that is mentioned in many posts? Is that just another difference in US vs European units?
    The same units are used in their NO2 and NO3 tests.

    Tomorrow it will be one week after I got my fish and my readings in this test are NO3 cca 0.75
    NO2 cca 0.3

    my ammonia test still hasn't arrived and I ordered it almost 2 weeks ago so I don't know what it is

    Oh I see I made a mistake. In NO3, there are larger numbers than 1 available. I just wrote down my result which was lower than 1 and than looked at the NO2 test with only low numbers available. I packed the NO3 and didn't look at the scale anymore, just assumed based on my result lower than 1 that the scale was the same in both tests. So somehow I mixed it all and got confused. :-/ Sorry.
