If your tank is cycled properly than your nitrites will always be at zero but you will always have nitrates to deal with!

Yes: nitrates are the final product of the tank's cycle (and therefore will always be present in your tank in increasing amounts). They are removed by doing water changes.

25% per week is fine! Opinions on what is ideal will differ fromperson to person, though...

And nitrates are not nearly as harmful as ammonia or nitrites, but high quantities are still very dangerous to fish.
