Will somebody help me out with the test results.i understand what gh/kh is but the API test is a little shaky on interpretation.the K/h took 6 drops which is 107 ppm but how does that convert to degrees.The k/h took 9 or 10 hard to tell and that is about 160-170.Any help will be appreciated.i am setting up a discus tank and will be picking them up on Sunday so just want everything to be right. Thanks

Each drop is a degree from what i understand.

This is what I used to convert API tests although 1 drop per degree is all you really need to do.

kh ppm x .056 = dKH
107 x .056 = 5.992 dKH

17.9 ppm of GH = 1 dGH
Approx 9-10 dGH
