Nitrite Levels

Postby midsmikey » Sun Aug 19, 2012 4:16 pm

Hi, in one of my tanks I have a nitirite level of 0.1, my lfs says that this is too high and are trying to sell me safe water to add to the tank, but in the booklet included with my Nutrafin water testing kit it states that a nitrite level of 0.3 or below is ideal, any idea????

Nitrite should be 0. Do a water change. I much prefer this to adding chemicals.
