Bottom line here, you know that the initial reading of 10ppm Nitrites was incorrect. If your Nitrites were that high you would know from looking at the fish. Nitrites inhibit respiration. It is very easy to identify Nitrite problems simply by looking at your fish.

The kit is incorrect, regardless of what the guy at the LFS told you.

API Master Freshwater kit is a favorite.

If your spending more than $25 on it, you are being ripped off. Many stores try to sell them for $40+.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Look at this.....
Aquarium Water Testing: Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Freshwater Master Test Kit


If you've never ordered from these people before you might still be able to get $5 off your first order. Therefor, call and place your order instead of doing it online, and ask if you can still get $5 off for a new customer.
