Nitrates?

Ok so I had a water problem with my tank and pretty much all of my fish died. I now have two left and they look much better. The only problem is I can't get the nitrate down. It went down to 0.5ppm last night and today it is back at 10ppm Is this normal? I have been preforming daily water changes to make the ammonia and nitrite levels down and that worked. The only thing that won't go away is the nitrates. Anyone? Thanks.

Congratulations. You have a cycled tank now. Nitrates should be between 5 and 40ppm in a healthy tank. You don't want or need them to go away.
