Interpreting Seachem Ammonia Test Results

This test kit gives readings for both free ammonia (NH3) and total ammonia
My results for free ammonia are consistently zero, but the total ammonia
range anywhere from .01 mg/l - 0.1 mg/l after 30 minutes from the top scale
(most sensitive) on the
strip.  (I'm testing multiple heavily planted/medium-heavily stocked
tanks -- readings from each tank are consistent.)
Should the total ammonia readings also be zero, and if not, what is an
acceptable level for total ammonia?
Thanks for your help,
