My Nitrites are off the charts. Ive never had them so high. Its a result of tearing the tank apart for 3 hours to get those 4 diamond tetras out for my dads tank. All the plants and decor had to come out, the water was lowered and the filters off. Massive bacteria kill :(. No fish losses, lots of gill pumping, a little odd behaviour from one cory (he keeps floating at the top) but other than that, I think everyone will survive. I am using Prime on a daily basis for nitrite detox, seems to work well. This spike would have killed everyone in the tank if left alone. This'll learn me!!!!
