Absolutely! More food=more waste (both fish waste and uneaten food)=more nitrates. Dirty filter media, bio balls or too many fish could also be contributing factors.

Do you have a LS bed? If so how deep is it? Also if your running a protein skimmer or anything with bio media, you need to clean them on a regular basis.
