High Nitrite

the 2 of my betta's in my 10 gallon have died, this was my school tank! i have a filter, and i cleaned up after them often, so why did the nitrites get high enough to kill them!?!?

What was the level? Had you recently done anything like change your filter that could have disrupted the state of your tank?

Nitrite does not build up enought to be visible before it kills your fish.
