I have tested water, seems no change? All are lowest of the saltwater charts (all reading nil) as i say this is saltwater chart and i am testing freshwater, i completely understand there may be discrepancies. However, I can't seem to find a copy of an original api freshwater testing chart, all that i click on are disbanded! Any help?

Scratch that found one, apart from my samples being slightly lighter than the samples shown on my example chart. Would be easier if i could show you? Dont know how to post an image to this post? I have tested Ph using my tap water and my fish water to show differentiation between the two, and i also have the charts that i used to decide.... but it shows that everything is ok?

How are the ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. It seems odd you would have 0 for all of those. You should at least have some nitrates, if everything is good.

To properly test your tap pH you need to let the water sit for 24 hours.
