Nitrites Reappeared after Fishless Cycle

Help please!!
Day-0: Fishless cycle completed. Ammo, nitrite both 0
Day-1: Added 6 Pristella tetras, 2 panda cory and I netrite. Ammo, nitrite both 0
Day-2: Added 4 platy. Ammo, nitrite both 0
Day-3: One of the platy died, ammo 0, nitrite 0.5ppm

Worried!!! Why nitrites are back?

All this while Nitrates are less than 10-15ppm

Whats going on?

Sorry guys.. just ignore the previous thread. It was an false alarm!! I had not washed the syringe after taking water from my 5 gallon tank that is under cycling!! After I redid its 0

But not sure why I lost one platy!! It was dull since the time I got it!

Might be nighttime aggression... observe after hours live bearers are weird. What's the m to f ratio of the platies?

They're really tolerant fish I had one for 10 years in with a newt and never had any problems. Somethings up, where did you get them? Try calling the store see what they say

... also Monday night's meeting will be in conjunction with the Boston Guppy Club as well. The speaker is a genetics professor from a local college that uses guppies in her work. If you like rare guppies they'll have a table set up
