The API tests are pretty reliable. I suspect your nitrate has not yet risen much at all and that you have nitrate in your tap water supply which is what you're seeing in the tank. Most of the UK has some nitrate in tap water, many have quite a lot (mine is at 40ppm). The nitrate test is the least reliable of the set and it is very important to shake/bang the second bottle very vigorously before use as the constituents can settle out of solution and give a false result.

Thanks so much for your response, to be honest I never tested my waters nitrate just it's ammonia levels. Maybe I should from now on. I'm planning on using Prime from now on, and doesn't that also deals with Nitrates too? Im not sure, as I used ATM Paradigm, all natural, which only deals with the chlorine etc.

And with being new, I follow testing instruction to the point. So I shake very well for the stated times before testing.
