Hey Everyone

I have been cycling my tank with ammonia for awhile now. When I do the AP nitrite test (drops), it turns purple right away and then after5 minutes is almost a clear colour with a slight blue/grey tint. It doesn't look like the colour on the card that comes with the test kit. Any ideas whether this is what it's supposed to look like? Also I added ammonia the night before and when I test it in the morning it is around 0.50ppm. So if the nitrite test is correct is the tank cycled? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

no its not ready. mine was like that for few days and i kinda thought cycle was almost done. it was 2ppm this weekend then started to fall back again, now 0.5ppm.

wait and i think u will get a clear result. it should always start light then darken more after 5min.
but i still dont know why it gave that result.
