api ammonia test kits are polarizing, but search returns win. Sure you can find search returns that show some Ipads failed to work, but is that really the scope you get from throughly searching Ipads, or that they are awesome? search 'api ammonia test kit false reading' and match that to the few reports we are about to get in defense of API ammonia kits.
misreading of the color gradients is probably huge.
I can see using them to indicate a large spike
test kits dont have a bad rap, api ammonia does. use anything else, or better yet join a biology thread where you dont have to test for ammonia with any test kit to have full control over ammonia at all times in any tank. thats just my take of course, im kinda lukewarm on the matter heh
you will get a constant, or presumed for whatever reason .25 reading as a new tank keeper on any tank you are cycling. you will think the cycle is stalled, never stops, the bacteria chose to develop only one kind of colony since you also have nitrates, your world will be in shambles and you w make one of two hundred thousand "stalled cycle" threads ive read the last decade. not you personally just the next person to use an api kit on a new tank cycling.
