Through water changes , your level looks good right now, if it gets 40+ that's when it can be toxic. Keep checking the levels periodically.

Nitrate is the byproduct of feeding your tank inhabitants. Two simple ways to lower it down. Cut down on feeding and pwc. It is less toxic than nitrite or ammonia. Fish may survive with 80 ppm but not corals
