Too high content of NO2

Hey, I was reading that the problem with too high content of NO2 you can solve with the salt as well - 2 spoons /10 liters. Is it correct? Is it ok with the plants, fish?

Thank you,

Jure

No, I doubt it would be very effective. Salt will potentially kill plants because of osmotic changes.

Get the tank cycled, and perform large water changes in the mean time.

The addition of salt is recommended to counteract the damage to fish ( Brown Blood disease) due to nitrIte toxicity/exposure. It has no effect on the nitrites themselves- only water changes will work to lower the nitrite concentration in water.

I’d use Prime in accordance with the directions to detox ammonia and nitrite, perform a large water change before dosing. Fish in cycling usually doesn’t go too well.

Thanks guys for the reply. It seemed strange to me to use the salt.
