Yesterday I did a 30% water change. This morning I tested my water and Nitrites were at 0.4 while Nitrates at 5. Ammonia is at 0 or at least less than 0.05 as that's what my JBL test kit shows as the lowest value. Nitrites, 2 days ago were at 0.05.

The tank has been running for more than 3 months and has been cycled for around 8 weeks before fish were introduced.

Anyone can help me to understand why my Nitrites spiked after a water change? Is it normal?

What about your live stock, how many fish are there, filtration, and how did you cycle the tank, I saw your other post and you have a 95 gallon tank, right?
Warning to all, LiveAquaria.com has FISH LICE! They destroyed my 10 yr old tank and killed all five of my giant goldfish (over 2 lbs) and the babies I bought from LiveAquaria. I had never seen fish lice before in over 20 years of fish keeping and thought the babies were showing ammonia burns despite no heightened ammonia level. I found out after I saw one on my giant goldfish and it MOVED. THEY KILLED MY GOLDFISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY LIED WHEN I TOLD THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY WOULD NOT EVEN HAVE THE COURTESY TO REFUND MY MOST RECENT ORDER LET ALONE RECOGNIZE MY GRIEF AT THE LOSS OF MY BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS. CRUEL, HATEFUL, IRRESPONSIBLE.
