That's how it's supposed to be. If you place it flat against the card and sometimes it's too faint of a color for you to read, look at it from the side so the color is darker and match it up with the color on the card and divide by ten.

When I test my Nitrate I'll get a reading of 5, but it's very faint so I double check by looking through the side, on the card it matches up with 50 so if I divide by 10 and get 5 to confirm.
