Here are my test results for my 30 gallon tank I started last night:

nitrate 0ppm
ammonia 0ppm - .25 ppm
nitrite 0ppm
ph 7.6
high range ph 8.0

did both ph tests, high range one seemed more accurate since it was in the middle of the chart.

high range ph test results for 10 gallon tank from October 25th.
7.4-7.6

test results for 10 gallon tank from october 22nd.
high range ph 8.2
ammonia 0ppm - .25 ppm
nitrite 0ppm
nitrate 5-10

Yeah, if your low range test is pegged at the top that doesn't mean you have that pH necessarily, it means your pH is so high it pegs the test. Your high range reading is your actual pH. That's what mine is.
