The test kit was changed because the original test kit used ran out and it could not be found anywhere. so this lead to a more expensive test kit being bought called Tetra.
This test kit is found to be more accurate in terms of pH level as a result having a better assessment.
It is said that if the NO3 levels go above 50 this could mean danger for the plant and fish especially. pH levels need to be between 6,4 - 6,8 and stay below a pH of 7 otherwise it will become alkaline and NO3 and NO2 becomes sensitive.
The results for week 4 were taken with both test kits for BPN1
NO3= 0 NO3= 0-10
NO2= 0 NO2= 0
GH<3 GH= 0
KH= 3-6 KH= 3-6
pH<6.4 pH= 6.4-6.8
If we have to compare Tetra, it would be more accurate in terms of pH.
Here are the results for week 5 are as follows:
the water quality for week 4 and 5 have stayed constant and this is a good thing, means that this fish is in the correct environment.
