You would want to do regular water changes. Some fish prefer to have clean water.

Nitrates themselves aren't going to harm the fish unless in really high levels. I've seen angelfish in tanks with well over 160ppm Nitrate and they were perfectly healthy.

Water changes also help with things like odor... Don't want stinky fishies! :D :D :D :D :D
