You need to properly cycle the tank to get rid of nitriates........

Only way to remove nitrites is through water changes. When your tank is cycled the good bacteria (nitrates) will remove them for you.

No, Dramaqueen. As soon as I posted I knew something did not look right, took me a little while to figure it out though. Just did not edit fast enough to keep you from seeing it! lol.

All of my tanks cycled in about a week after seeing nitrites, so hang in there, you are probably close to having your tank cycled! Your daily water changes are probable going to come to an end soon.
