Alright, so I went ahead and removed all fish and moved them into a smaller tank and pulled out all rocks and gave them a good wash. I then did about a 60% water change, which mixed up all the substrate sand etc. I finished my aquascaping and just did a test of the water and nitrates are still about 20 and my ph is at 7.8. Everything else checked out good. What do I do now to get the nitrates to zero and ph up? Thanks.
