What to Do When Aquarium Nitrites Are High?

Answer

You need three types of beneficial bacteria and these grow in sequence. The first digests the ammonia and creates the nitrite, the second digests the nitrite to make nitrate and the third reduced the nitrat to nitrogen and oxygen. If the process is too slow, you may have fish overcrowding or you may be feeding them too much.
