Re: Starting a 5 gallon Marine Tank

I just tested the tank, tap water and RO water side by side for ammonia.

The tap water tested .25 ppm

RO water tested 0ppm

Tank tested .25ppm

The tank water test solution forms a precipitate when I add the second solution and it gets cloudy after I shake it up.

The tap water and RO water remain translucent and no precipitate. Guessing the test is reacting with the salt?
