the nitrites are still there, even after two water changes... they have come down though but are still there, which is a problem!! should i just carry on doing 20% changes every day? or second day?

Try doing a larger water change, like 40 to 50% and see how much it comes down.

i would say go for 30% first and see how that goes. check the filter to see if the sponges need a rinse maybe? (in old tank water)
