Yep, 10 and 20ppm are very close on the API color chart. Then again, for our purposes, we really don't need an exact decimal measure. Although we'd like nitrates as low as possible, even at 20ppm, things are okay.

The 10 does appear just a touch more orange-y than the 20, which is a touch redder, but still, when I hold the test tube up, it's so close.... Anyone else have this problem? I'd like to have an accurate reading!
