Not that I've seen a lot of nitrite tests from various makers, but the color (yellow, orange, red) looks more like a nitrate test. Nitrite kits, if I remember (been so long) were always green to blue. You said you thought the box said nitrate.
Good point, that wasn't a very hard cycle. However mine never was either because of what you said with cured very live Live Rock.
I have always seen the colors like you said.... However, his card says "NO2
" right on top, so it must be Nitrite.
