You need to go with the high pH results. The regular pH will only color up as high as it will go, so 8 is your number.
Don't you just love playing scientist? Sadly my kids grew out of it already.
Thanks for the help. I tested my tap water and my high pH came out at 7.4, and 7.6 for pH. Is it the items in my tank which are making the pH higher and should I be concerned?
As for the 0 nitrate, I guess i'll just have to wait until it rises and keep checking every day.
