Thanks Hara, do you think it's necessary to pull out the rock and vac under them?

I'll leave tearing down the tank as a last resort then I'll see what I can do with the gravel I can get to, and do the filters every week, and see what happens, fingers crossed!

Thanks to all for their advise

Thanks everyone for their advise, the nitrate is gradually going down it's now around 60ppm so ALMOST at a safe level, and I didn't remove any rock
