Hi everyone. Got question. If I'm curing with general cure and will test water with RedSea ammonia test, will it be readable? Will it work normally? I ordered ammonia checker but didn't receive it yet. Thank u

General Cure is Praziquantel and Metronidazole. Neither of those directly affect ammonia tests as far as I've ever seen. Some bonded coppers use amines and those can give a false positive on some ammonia tests.
