JBL TV #7: Why do fish die in high nitrite levels and what can be done about it?

How does the nitrogen cycle in the aquarium work? Why do nitrite values get too high and how can the value be reduced? Why adding salt is senseless. The effect of medication and filter cleaning on beneficial cleansing bacteria. Maintenance needed to get your ideal aquarium water. Biologist Heiko Blessin explains clearly and comprehensibly why nitrite is so dangerous for aquarium fish and what we can do about it. The issue of nitrite poisoning in aquariums has never been explained in a simpler and more understandable way!

Additional information on nitrite and the problems it causes can be found in the JBL Aquarium Themeworld at  Reduzir valores de água problemáticos and at Valores da água .
