    Tech Notes
    Nitrite is a substance that is toxic to fish and invertebrates. It is a misconception that once a tank is through its cycle (first 3 or 4 weeks) that nitrite has vanished. Before it can be transformed to nitrogen gas, the nitrate is first converted back to nitrite. When this cycle is not or cannot be completed, toxic nitrite can be present in significant concentration. In properly cycled aquariums, nitrite is converted to nitrate which is then anaerobically transformed into harmless nitrogen gas within live rock and miscellaneous filter materials.
    Description
    Many nitrite test kits suffer from interference by amines (such as naturally occurring and essential amino acids) resulting in a too low measured value especially if the nitrite concentration is relatively low. Salifert’s Nitrite test kit does not suffer from such an amine interference because very special ingredients are used. These same ingredients also result in a full color development within minutes. The developed color is very intense making detection of even minute traces of nitrite easy. It probably is the most sensitive, accurate and fastest nitrite test kit available.
