How likely is it for a fish to recover from high nitrites?

I have a gasping fish that I think is a result of high nitrites.

How well do fish recover from this scenario assuming I get the levels down fast?

It's amazing what fish can recover from, but there's no guarantee fish will recover. Too much of a variable to honestly give any kind of statistic answer. Just do what you can and hope for the best.

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
