Not so much that I am concerned with the ppm value of these 2 samples - as I am concerned with the right hand tube being darker than the left hand tube.
Left is NO3 in tap water. Right is NO3 in 75g tank water. Bearing in mind I front end loaded the tank with 10ppm NO3 after a water change last Wednesday. My daughter was given a weekly pill box with a set amount of fish food for each day so as not to over feed like I typically do. And here we are, 7 days later and I still have what I would call "plenty" of NO3. Maybe I am getting the hang of things...



And, before I break out the weed wacker....

Do you always have the much NO3 in the tap or is it something to do with the floods and runoff?

Actually, using the API NO3 test my tap typically does test out with some orange. Usually a light orange.
As for the floods - my first thought would be the NO3 should be lower with the floods. But it really does not look much different from what I have tested before.
Going to test TDS, GH & KH of tap here in a little bit just to see those numbers are going back up yet.

Looks like it was a lot of fun! I almost decided to go, just couldn't fit it into the schedule. I'm so envious!
