Alternative to API Ammonia test?

Is there a better alternative to the ammonia test that is included in the API Master Freshwater kit? The range between 0 and 0.25 is very difficult to differentiate. At the least, I wish the page with the color squares had more white space between the columns so there wouldn't be 4-6 colors reflected on the tube. I don't want anything unnecessarily complex, but just easier to use.

Thanks!

Not sure about the other test kits, but you can cut the card apart into different lens and tape them to a piece of paper if you want more white space
