It's actually the nitrate levels that spike. I haven't heard anything about the nitrite levels.

I'm in the process of doing this now on my BC as well.

Beanfish - were you able to do this all at once? Or did you remeove the bio balls a little at a time?

As for the LR to be covered, it does need to be submerged, or it will probably have the same effect as the bio balls. I may have to go with live rock rubble to keep it submerged.
