Not sure that doing a PWC with fresh made SW is the best thing either. IMO, I'd detox and change in the am (est)

Ahab I'm confused, everything i've read has said ammonia is the worst for fish then nitrites, nitrates are acceptable in small doses. But ive never read anything stating nitrites are worse than ammonia, so if you could point me in the direction of this info i would like to read more about it.

'Nitrite is letal at much lower levels than ammonia. Therefore it is critical to continue daily testing and treatment until the nitrite falls to zero.'

and even that depends on a variety of factors including o2 levels, temp, ph to name a few and is more toxic to FW species than SW


Fish Disease - Nitrite Poisoning

one of many...............
