yeah, .25 or less is fine for the API test kit.. it's not quite there, it's registering ammonia, but it doesn't go down low enough. anything under .1 is normal, which is probably where you are at. Ammonia can also be in a non-toxic state and register too high on test kits in certain circumstances and still be safe. If it goes above .25 then you need to take action.
