Can driftwood cause nitrite to spike up?
It's a 2G fishbowl, there were 5 amano shrimps in there, 4 now. D:
It's been cycled, and running without filter, heater for months. This morning, I found 4/5 of my amanos are dead. I checked everything, and the only thing that's on the extreme is my nitrite, it's even more purple than Barney the dinosaur!! So there's two things I did the previous night...
1. fed them hikari shrimp crusine.
2. introduced new spider driftwood.
The wood has not been soaked before, I have also put them in my other nanos, and they're fine.
For plants in the tank: dwarf hairgrass, crypts, and a bunch of frogbit, duckweed, and salvinias.
I would have thought MAYBE the driftwood spiked ammonia, but it's reading 0, just the nirite is off the charts. Is this possible?
