Help with nitrates

My nitrates constantly run high no matter what I do. Today I changed out 20 gal. of a 56 gal. tank and then re tested my nitrates and I get the same reading as before about 40ppm. The tank has been setup for 7 months and I have over a pound of live rock per gallon with a HOB filter and a protein skimmer (no sump yet) I also do 10 gal. water changes weekly.
