run to your LFS and buy a good sized box of Activated Carbon. You'll also want to buy a "Media Bag" (unless you have something to put the carbon in to keep it from flowing into the tank)

Put the AC into the media bag and place it either in your sump or somewhere that water can flow over it. The AC will help to pull out some of the amonia and other chems.
