If you read the article I linked to, you would have read that a test was done using 5 tank raised clownfish. Nitrites were raised to 330ppm. After a few days at this nitrite level, 2 of the 5 fish died.

Wouldn't that be the same as burying a man in 10 tons of salt and after a few days seeing if he was still alive. Nitrites at a level of 330ppms is not something that any reefer would allow his tank to get to.
