so my nitrites are still very high. and i just did a 30-35 gal water change and they are still very high. im wandering how long i have to wait to do another water change. and is there a limit to how many i can do in a day.
how big is your tank? that really makes a difference in how often and how much you should change. but in any situation where poinsoning is possible (such as in your case)- it is preferable that you do the change to save the fish. I had a tank once that I had this problem with- I had to do a 30-35% daily to keep the fish alive. some think frequent water changes slow down the cycle- i didn't care, I just wanted my fish to be alright.
"Instant gratification takes too long"
I understand that part... do you have a nitrate reading? If they are showing they should take care of the nitrite spike without the need to change water if you have no fish. I wouldn't add fish until the nitrites are 0 and the nitrates are showing a readable amount.
Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!
