    I'd say it's about 7.3 hence the slightly paler colour. Could be wrong. I'd guess the ammonia is .175 ish. As it seems to be somewhere in the middle. They can be tricky to read especially in certain lighting.

    not an expert on test kits, in fact i dont even have one. But Just going to give my observations. Your ph looks like 8.0 ph while your ammonia looks more of 0.

    i think the ph is 8. I have a 10g divided tank housing 2 bettas..2 mystery snails..3 ghost shrimp. Is a ph of 8 ok 4 bettas?? I have read u should keep a stable ph rather than reaching 4 a different ph..what do u guys think?

    totally agree on that one..the colors sometimes arent exact....more accurate than the test strips though!
