I dont think I lost the platy due to ammonia. I think she was sick from the pet store. she never ate since i brought her home so I think she was gonna die regardless
Test strips are horribly innaccurate. I use an API freshwater liquid test kit, as do most of us. A little pricey but if the tests are performed according to the instructions they are right on as far as water results. Maybe you can purchase one? At the very least get the API ammonia liquid test kit.
