Will high nitrites (10+, off the scale) harm plants?
Doing the fishless cycle, got a little overboard with the ammonia at first - a 30 or 40% water change with Primed water got that within reason. A cap full of ammonia now will have the level back to 0 in less than a day. All good there.
Nitrite us staying off the chart on the test, a brighter violet than the 10 on the chart, even after the water change.
Nitrates have started to register a bit.
The question: will the nitrite levels harm plants? (just filled the tank with a bunch i got here on PT, really don't want to risk them)
If yes, what can I do about it? Massive 75% water change?
If it isn't harming them I have no problems waiting for the cycle, even if it takes months. Just can't stand to see the plants die.
