I started a 55g tank around March 1st using a fishless cycle. On April 21st I added 3 swordtails. The water test results with an API test kit have been:
April 15th April 19th April 21st April21st April 24th
PH High: 8.4 PH High: 8.2 PH High: 8.2 PH High: 8.2 PH High: 8.2
Ammonia: .25 Ammonia: 0 Ammonia: .25 Ammonia: 25 Ammonia: .25
Nitrite: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrite: 0 Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 10 Nitrate: 10 Nitrate: 10 Nitrate: 10 Nitrate: 10

I am not sure about the PH and Ammonia levels, should they be lower? If so how should I do that? The test results for PH were off the color chart so I tested the High PH. I am using well water that is filtered and UV light treated.
Thank you

Sorry the numbers look terrible. I thought reading the results vertically would work. Doesn't look like it
