    Hmm, well, what's the temperature? Oh, your inbox is full, btw. Only your nitrites are high, your nitrates are fine at 5.0. I would do a few water changes, imo.

    Nitrites are high because your tank is not cycled. What is your ammonia level?
    I suggest doing a 50% water change right now.

    Sometimes cycles crash for no reason. It happens.
    Keep doing 50% changes every day or every few days until nitrite and ammonia read 0.

    Thanks BTWB, I'd do another water change & you can double dose prime to detoxify them for 24 hours
