Well, you'll be glad to know its not the plants XD At least, not for me. I get the same spikes in tanks without the plants. OFL thinks its a false reading, that something (not Nitrites) are giving me a reading of nitrites.

No need to purchase plants from Petsmart. I'll say it again - the plants are not the culprit. This thread should have died and been forgotten, because I was wrong with my assumption that the plants caused my problems. But it was brought back. So please: Stop suggesting new plants, or to test the plants, or anything else with the plants, because they ARE NOT the reason why I got nitrite spikes.

I wasn't trying to be snappy either >.< I was just posting that so hopefully this thread would finally die. Worst part about test online is there's no tone to the text, so something that's not supposed to sound snappy, can.

Well after your information, I got a new test kit - the ones from API - and retested all of my params and I'm actually getting normal readings now.
