    CYA level. Is it supposed to be completely invisible?

    I always have problems with this test. Is it supposed to be completely invisible? I have it filled to the top and this is what it looks like:

    It is probably higher than where it is in the pic. That is a little too opaque. But, not sure about the lighting.

    Well, you have SOME CYA for sure. Was it at the 30 line or the top of the vial? What is your goal CYA?
