Maybe, but there is at least a chance that this stability between tanks is a function of errors due to biofilm fouling. Natural waters ammonia levels are all over the shop, tanks could be the same which would vindicate the Colorimetric tests that has received a bad rep. Enter NeonRabbit221B.seneye owners are not reporting their systems drifting wildly away from reporting in the thousandths, when trimmed, on a full running reef
where's the doubt coming from regarding reporting stability? i dont own one to know but dont the slides have a useable life then you change out/calibrate another? if some of those vary from time to time like a QA fail at the production line then that's one thing, but reports from the field regarding seneye pretty much just smash all currently known cycling rules in the hobby with their consistency, tank to tank
again its agreed there's no baseline proof they're bottom-line accurate tank to tank
what I do like about them tank to tank is the relatively consistent final nh3 reporting numbers, across reefs, combined with what we already know about surface area dynamics (these align) and I also like how changing up surface area schemes quickly registers as a drop in oxidation rate on the machine, very very low lag report time
you can place seneye in new environments and closely capture various forms of ammonia conversion even as of this month I still say its the best tester we have access to.
our hobby ammonia assessment optionset is plagued by long lag times and inconsistent reads.
