i dont know if you read the first post in this thread but my ammonia in the tank with the tests first use (before rinsing with tap water) was 0ppm ammonia...since the tubes have been used and rinced with tapwater the reading have been at 0.25ppm ammonia.......and yes tap is infact at 1.0ppm ammonia

Yes. Before tests, always rinse the vial in the tank water you're going to test. If you rinse it thoroughly after each test at the sink (to remove all the regeant), you can safely rinse it in the tank before collecting the water for the next test. Also don't let the test water come in contact with your fingers, as most of the test kit instructions say.
