Hello, I too have a newish tank thats in its 5th week. Everything is going well but when I test the water which is on a daily to every other day basis with my API master kit my ammonia readings are ALWAYS 0.25ppm!! at first I couldn't tell if it was yellow or yellow green but to be honest its definitely more green and closer to the 0.25ppm mark. it never changes, it doesn't go up, it doesn't go down..... so I am wondering if this is actually correct or just a quirk of this kit??
Nitrite is ALWAYS 0ppm and nitrate is between 10-20ppm
