I concur with BWG, floating plants are the way to go! Frogbit and water sprite are both GREAT at reducing nitrates, although they won't eliminate the problem if it's stemming from over crowding. You may also want to up the size of your water changes, depending. How large are you doing? A 50% would be what I would do, each week.

I'm not sure of any plants from a supermarket that would live submerged, but I'm positive that there are lots that could do well riparium style! (hanging in baskets on the back of the tank)

Rice may also work.

Some grocery stores also have a garden section, does yours? Many plants sold as 'house plants' do great riparium style.
