I got my drop checker in the mail today.. I've done a little research and am a little confused on how to set it up. Every instructional I see says to add the solution and then add a "Ph indicator". Only one solution came with the drop checker (Standard Ebay one) and when I checked back to the Ebay listing it said the solution was a 4dkh solution & Ph indicator combined. However, they say the solution is supposed to be blue, but mine is yellow. Is there something I need to add? And if so, what?

Week Three Update
This week I saw increased growth from my HC, as well as the continued crazy growth of Riccia and DHG. I also added a drop checker (brang my BPS down from ~1.5 to ~.33!), A Wabi-Kusa with Rotala Sp. Green- to increase plant mass and absorb extra nutrients (thus preventing algae), and two Otos.
No real algae yet, just very small amounts of green algae, I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever see a diatom bloom.
My first couple of runners.
Wabi Kusa. Hopefully I'll be able to take this out sometime during Week Four. Then I just need to find something to do with it..
New Resident. This guy I just got today, so he has yet to color up. My other one, however, I've had for about a year, so he's big, fat, and lazy.
Really the only place in the tank with noticeable algae. Need to clean this out soon!
