GH testing ranges?

I saw some test strips a few days ago that had a GH test on them. the chart scored them in the middle at like 75. Everything I have seen recommended for shrimp is like 4.... so can someone explain the middle range on those strips I saw? They didnt have single digit scores on the chart.

I thought perhaps there was a conversion I was missing.

what you're seeing is expressed in ppm (I'm assuming) - divide by 17.86 to get the GH expressed in degrees...so that's about 4.1-spot on you're target!
