Yeah it wraps its lil tentacles/stems around the food
You've got good advice here. I wouldn't try feeding that nem for awhile. I'm sorry but nitrite is extremely toxic to fish and to say otherwise to a new reefer is promoting bad habits for the future in my opinion. You do not want amonnia or nitrites in your system with live stock, period! It's very stressful to fish let alone inverts. Go slow, and research before making decisions.
While Nitrite is not as toxic to sw fish as it is to fw fish.There are no significant studies as to the actual effects of different levels of nitrite.The studies quoted in this link are for deaths ocuring and only one species was tested (except inverts as there are several for them).Also with nitrites present there could very well be ammonia present which is even more dangerous.I definitely agree that after the cycle is completed testing for it is probably unecessary.
Just a little update on zappy
