    Back when my tank crashed last year, I had weird readings and decided to tripplecheck the results with different test kits.
    I havn't had to use any ammonia test kits since then.

    From one day to the next, my ammonia levels went off the scale. Even newly mixed water was showing signs of ammonia.

    I never really found out what the problem was. Thoughts at the time were a bad batch of salt, or something airborn.

    The only survivors were my current hippo tang, clown, and chromis. And that's because they were relocated temporarily to Toutouche's sump.
