You could also try building a scrubber..Same idea as cheato..clean the screen once a week and harvest all the excess ..They work great,its the only filtration i use..I also have a messy bunch of eaters

When my nitrates were up I was doing 15% water changes every 3rd day until they dropped to 10ppm then I started Vodka dosing and got my nitrates to 2ppm.
