If nitrites are anything but zero, I would feed less food and perform daily water changes if needed,especially if this tank is less than four or five weeks old.
Many are those who let a tank run for three or four week's (usually much lesss),and think the tank has cycled because there is no ammonia or nitrites. Won't,be any ammonia, or nitrites, until fishes ,fish food,fish waste is present.
Ammonia and nitrites then often times climb to toxic level's and fishes begin to suffer, hence the need for maybe daily water changes and reduced feeding's to help keep the toxin's at VERY low level's ZERO is ideal.
