Anyone know why says that the Red Sea Nitrate Test kits are for marine use only? Is it just an assumption on their part that only reef keepers would want to test nitrates, or is it actually that the test shouldn't be used for freshwater tanks (might give bad readings or something?) Is there a Red Sea Nitrate kit just for freshwater?

90 gallon: 180 W, eco-complete/gravel, pressurized CO2,10 otos, 1 SAE, 1 peacock eel and some other fish
20 gallon low tech: A few swordtails, 3 neon tetras and java fern
10 gallon low tech: dwarf puffers, crypts and moss (no blue green algae for now)
10 gallon low tech: Cherry shrimp!!! crypts, moss, java fern
55 gallon no tech: tin foil barbs and plastic plants
