What about the 29,000ppm of chlorine? Wouldn't everything be dead?
What does it say the normal range is? I tried searching an saw something saying NSW is 19000ppm

if I’m correct and all the values are just at a higher concentration then I think all the results can be divided by 1.31 so your chlorine might be 21890ppm?
But I think my assumption is probably wrong and it’s just a coincidence that the values are somewhat at similar ratios

I know san jose tap water has 2.8-3ppm of chlorine. I've read that's it's dangerous to swim in a pool with chlorine over 10ppm.

So I've used Triton labs icp in the past. I've heard a few ads for icp analysis and they were having a sale so I decided to give them a try. Just based on the calcium and the magnesium levels on the test I'm going to say the whole thing is garbage. (Calcium on trident and salifert are 480 and mag on trident and salifert are 1450)

Yeh I think this is measurment error. I doubt fish and coral can survive such high levels even.

Check this thread we have nice data aggregate of Triton and ATI.
I think these low cost ICP kits are too risky in term of accuracy.

In the last month I've lost five torches. About one per week. They look amazing the night before and then I check my tank before work and they are covered in brown jelly. This morning it was my NY Knicks torch. I need to do something. So I'm starting an in tank treatment of cipro.

I didn't have enough time to set up a qt tank for my knicks so I put it in a container and floated it in my sump. This is what it looked like after work today.
