Need some advice

Tested my 30 and 80 gallon today.

30g
Ph 7.8-8
Ammo .25
Nitrite 0??
Nitrate 20-40

80 gallon
Ph8.2-8.4
Ammo .25-.50
Nitrite .25
Nitrate 80!?

In my 30 gallon there's nothing but 1 nassarius snail, 1 emerald crab, 1 peppermint shrimp and at least 15 blue/red leg hermit crabs. I don't know how there are no nitrites but 20-40 nitrates. Need help getting the ph up as well.

In the 80 gallon I just changed the sand bed out completely probably why the nitrates are so high. Battling cyano for awhile now there's still some trying to come back but idk why it is. Tank stock is a columbian shark, 3-4 scarlet reef crabs, 2 clownfish, a three striped damsel, and 2-3 nassarius snail(8 more coming tomorrow).

When was your last water change that would bring those levels down. Lots of things can cause it. I wouldn't worry about the ph will be fine where it is
