Theres so much crap going on in my life right now, my tanks are pretty much the only thing keeping me going.
I just want safe readings and to not have to go and buy a 'free ammonia' test kit.

*sigh* I feel like crying right now.
If it's frustrating you that badly then maybe you SHOULD get the test that will tell ammonia vs ammonium. I got the Seachem test off Amazon for under $20. Is your piece of mind worth $20?
