Oh wow...

I read an entire research study about the affects of Nitrate and Nitrite in your tank water...

The stuff I learned was quite shocking. About that it pretty much suffocates the fish slowly over time.

What is it?
Nitrite is toxic to fish, and can cause death when in high levels in an aquarium. See "new tank syndrome" for information on how nitrite is produced, and how to eliminate it.
The danger often comes when fish get weak as a result of being stressed from the nitrite. They are more susceptible to parasites, bacteria and other diseases.

Symptoms:
Fish may sit at the bottom of the aquarium, without much movement. They may also go to the surface of the aquarium, gasping for air. The may appear lethargic and off colour. Burning to the skin may occur, if so the skin will appear red and excess mucus may be produced. Their gills may appear brown of lilac in colour. They may also 'flash' and scratch up against aquarium objects.

As Nitrite poisoning produces very similar symptoms to many other diseases certain diagnosis can only be made with a nitrite testing kit.

Drax is at a disadvantage already, being that he has a bad eye. His eye is going to be prone to infection as it is. If he's swimming around in nitrite for a week, and you aren't able to monitor the levels for him, it's going to feel very uncomfortable to him. Understand in the end, your bettas health is all I really care about. :)

Your plants are nice. :P
This is pretty much what we've all told you from the very start.

Yes I am aware of that.

This was just to validate both of you.

Plus I'm very skeptical normally...
