Just do it everyday until you get safe levels. preferably 0 ppm

I'm thinking the tank has not cycled yet. You will need to probably test everyday and do water changes 50% at a time. Post you results everyday. Well keep an eye on you.

That's looking really good, anytime you see ammonia over .25 and nitrites over .25 You need to do the water changes. In a 55 gallon tank replacing 5 gallons does'nt get rid of those levels. 30 to 50% is probally the norm. That's 15 gallons to 30 gallons of water that needs to be pwc. Most people like to keep their nitrates around 0 to 20 .

You say the fishy's are fine and that's great, but at those levels the experts say that the fish are under stress. fyi I wish you the best. Other members may add anything I have missed. Have a great day.
