Also as stated use the brand "Prime" when you do the water changes!!!

How many fish in this tank? The fx5 will help with mechanic filtration and bio breakdown of the ammonia and nitrites. Only water changes, or being used by plants...a lot of plants, will lower nitrate. How much substrata in the tank? Too thick a layer can be hard to clean. If you use the prime over the stress coat you can use a lot less product in each change. The dry form " Safe" is even more economical to use. Good luck with your nitrates , that is the hardest test to get consistent readings with. Also what is your actual nitrate reading?

Is your fish healthy and happy. Sometime we are too critical about the parameters and stress out without looking at the fish. But if you want to lower nitrate then invest in a RODI unit and use RO water to do your water change. Also I bought a bunch of bamboo plant and pothos and put it in your sum light it up 24hrs like a plant refugium
