    Hi, it appears that your tank is still cycling or you recently added fish. I would suggest doing 40% daily water changes until you do not see nitrites and continue your water changes to keep the nitrates at or below 5.0 ppm. I would also suggest adding two tablespoons of salt per 10 gallons to present the fish from absorbing nitrites into their bodies. Also age your water if possible.
