Well, I have some Anacharis in my 75 but the nitrate is still a little over 40 ppm.
Says Prime detoxifies nitrate and Amquel Plus removes nitrate..

Does it seem to actually lower nitrates a little?

I think prime and amquel plus are really the same thing, just different manufacturers. and my experience with amquel is that it does lower nitrates by about 10-20ppm .

Nitrate at a little over 40ppm is not harmful to your fish, so I would not go to any extreme measures over it. Fish can tolerate quite a bit higher levels, and often do in those old tanks where people swear they have "never done a water change in 7 years" etc.

There are certain sensitive species that don't do as well but with your stock you should be just fine.

If you are doing your water changes and keeping debris under control, and the nitrate is pretty steady, then I would personally enjoy the tank and not worry about it - but that is not a popular opinion, just my own.
