Just ranting

Well its been about 8 weeks of doing PMDD, and my tank is starting to look
good.  About 3-4 weeks ago I started getting the fuzzy black stuff :-(....
and some of the nasty green stuff,  I was monitoring the Nitrate level with
my brand new, expensive Seachem Nitrite/Nitrate test kit, my Nitrate was
zero, so I started to add a little more KNO3, I kept on testing, still no
Nitrate, added more KNO3, still noting, more KNO3 ... on and on (this was
done over a week or so),  the last time I added alot, about 10ml (from a
solution of 2 tablespoon KNO3 to 150ml of water), and still no reading on
the Nitrate test.   I then decide I should check the test kit with the
reference sample (I know, I should have done this a long time ago),  well, I
did the test and I got less than .1 as a reading, it was supposed to be
10mg/l.  So I called up Seachem, told them what happened, they said that the
reagent was from a bad batch, and that they will ship me some new one, this
was about two weeks ago.  I call Seachem today, because I have not received
the reagent yet, guess what the guy said,  "I would make sure I send them
out today".... errrrrrrrrrrrr.......  TODAY!!!!!!!!, what about two weeks

Ok, thats it, I just had to rant a little.

Also if you guys use the Seachem Nitrite/Nitrate Test,  make sure you did
the reference check.
