if your not using RO/DI water ( which i suggest ) then test your water source before using it, this may contain high nitrates to begin with.

cut back feeding, increase water changes.

Here are some tips for lowering the nitrate levels in the tank:
1. Low the amount of food supply to the fish.
2.Do a water change from 25% to 30%.
3.you must use nitrate kit to check the level.
