What's high? What's to low? Everything ok? What else should I be testing?

Mixed reef mostly lps and softys.

Was the ammonia reading just kind of an in between color or do you think it was above 0? I wouldn’t chase any of those numbers except for the ammonia. PO4 is slightly higher than some desire, but personally I wouldn’t worry about it.

I was using an api kit so yes between colors I think. I went with the closer color.

I just did a 5 gal water change last night and am going to check it again. I plan another 5 gal change on Sunday. That should bring the ammonia down in a 30g tank right?

I have about 30 or so pounds I think and when cleaning last night I did realize that I can not find my PJ Cardinal. I moved rock and everything and I do not remember seeing it. That is more than likely my ammonia right?

If something died and is decomposing it’ll definitely cause a slight ammonia spike
Ok I will have to see if I can find it. Anyone know if Cardinals are jumpers? I will look around the tank tonight and see if I can find it. Would my pistol shrimp have grabbed it if it died? I did see it swimming a day ago though, hmmmm.

Not really jumpers from what I know. They often go into rockwork and die in my experience.... have a good clean up crew for those.
