Nitrites. They are dangerous substances which can kill your fish.
How does that make you rich?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

well....if fish poop can make cars go faster,...lol....but i think it would be hard to get the no2 into a useable form, and extracted from the water itself. lol

Nitrous Oxide is N2O, not NO2. No getting rich yet unless there is a market for nitrites.

In aquarium vocabulary, nitrites is just one of the substances you test. They can be dangerous however if detected. If your nitrites are high, adding salt will help. Make sure not to add excessive salt though.

blue, since he's a beginner, it might be better if you didnt tell him to add salt unless you explain specifically what KIND of salt, how much, etc...especially since at this point he would be guessing as to what his nitrate levels were. he hasnt had his water tested yet.
