Has you tank completed it's cycle? If it has, you shouldn't be having ammonia or nitrite spikes unless something died and/or is causing to crash your tank.

If it is currently cycling, no need to get rid of the nitrites, they will go down over time as it is converted to nitrates.

Take a look here for cycling. It seems like your tank hasn't cycled yet and until it does, all fish and/or coral will die quickly.

Nitrite is not toxic in a saltwater aquarium until you get well over 100ppm (yes NitrIte). It has something to do with the ions (can't recall at this moment). so don't worry about those but read up on the cycle...

Sean - if you're asking that question, you should absolutely 100% NOT be adding coral to your tank yet, and likely not fish either.

You've got a good experienced group here, but we're going to need more information from you (after you've read the links referenced above).
