Upping your water change volume for the time being will help remove any nutrients still present. I thing the canister is the problem especially if you have biomedia etc that is not being changed etc. replacing all the media would help but i would not use the biomedia since you have live rock. Not you dont need the canister but there are some things u cam do with it. Many people run carbon and gfo in the or live rock rubble.

I will remove the biomedia and hope it has a positive effect. I have been thinking about a fuge but cabinet space is restricting and I only have a 15litre nano cube spare to use for it. Considering tank volume also inlet and outlet from the fuge it maybe difficult to do but I have been advised on here it could still work

Really any size fuge you can run is better than nothing

Plus a fuge can double as a hospital tank incase someone gets injured

This is true, see nothing bad can come of having one. I'll be looking to get it set up sooner rather than later. Thank you for your help
