okay, on your first post it said that nitrates were at 10ppm. But if it's the nitrites that are high, just continue your water changes frequently with smaller amounts each day. Do about 25% water change every day until your nitrites start to fall in order.
Your ammonia and nitrates are low which are good. Ammonia is really deadly and nitrates are second on the list. You nitrites being high means that your tank is or nearly is cycled and you may want to cut down on some fish which is generating more waste than your tank can handle right now. Bacteria is breaking down your ammonia and nitrates, so keep up on the water changes and see how it goes.
Don't try to do more than 25% water change, you could shock your fish with too much new water in the tank at once.
