I know neither of those are *perfect* but it makes me think that even if they are a little off, they would be closer to the 4 I am getting with the liquid kit. My fish are acting fine. They have been a little funny, but I noticed my guppy has been going crazy on everyone. I removed him this afternoon and all my fish are acting better than normal now.
I'm worried about the ammonia, but I'm starting to wonder if it's my liquid test. I'm going to try testing my tap water again and see what I get.
If the ammonia was the dangerous "free" ammonia then yes.
If it is locked up with chemicals like prime then no.
