Hello guys and girls!

I would like to know from where in the planted tank I need to take the water sample to measure pH, kH and others. Time ago I read that it was supposed to be taken from bottom of the tank, away from the return. Every video I have seen, it shows the water being taken from the top or it doesn't say.

I know the the pH, kH and others changes around the aquarium, but I would like to know the best and accurate (?) place to do the test.

Thanks for your information

Water circulation in most tanks is so good that it does not matter where you take the sample from. The variations that might be present will be so small that hobby level test kits cannot measure it.

Thank for your quick response. Much appreciate it.

So no matter where I take the water sample, it won't vary that much? Can anyone give me an opinion on the color of this test? I mean... Ph #
