PH help...

OK so I misplaced the card that you need to use the PH test kit...
These are micro and standard focus pictures of the test result(I think).
Could someone tell me if it looks correctly done(three drops solution)
and what your guess as to the PH level ?

The one where it looks farther away is the standard focus.
Exposure Auto Fix and brighten only in photoshop.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

The second link does not have a picture attached. The first one is not white balanced so it is very hard to tell. It looks more green than blue, so my "guess" is around 6.6ish. A better picture will help.

I posted this because of a question concerning using the correct Fe.
I think it's that low(my tap is not) because of high organics(?) in the tank as I like
not to see gravel for the bottom but rather prefer the detrius/mulm look.
I am going to test the tap just to see however right now.
But the DTPA/EDTA is for certain levels of PH so it might be a good idea if I tested it
to see if what I now have is correct for the PH.

Oops the tap is very close to the same...must fluctuate around here as last year I got 7.8 reading.
