This test kit does not come with color coded cards. The tests are results are based on how many drops you use to get it to change color. The details are in the instructions that should have been included in the kit.


Equipment: 55g, 3x 9watt tt uv, 2-xp3's, pressurized co2, inline co2 reactor, 216 watt catalina t5 fixture, milwaukee ph controller, 300 watt hydor inline heater, aqua soil

I don't think that the API GH/KH kit has color cards. The test readings are based on when the color changes from blue to yellow or green to orange if I remember correctly.

So there is no "what shade of blue do I have". And no color cards either.

Dang, Ninja's.
