Agree with Indy, to help things out I would take the CC out and put in 2" sand bed. CC is the worst at trapping waste and causing nitrates. I have read that 40 ppm is getting to the point where it could stress the fish and cause health issues.

I have the purigem in both my tanks. It does help. Also your dad could just add copious quantities(as directed of course) of Prime. It is supposed to help with ammonia, nitrites and with nitrates. I use this also.

Good luck! Kat
