Yeah water changes are the best way to reduce anything bad. Water changes are practically the cure-all

I have been doing some water changes today but so far not much success. I decided to try to get a little more bacteria via Stability Tank Stabilization by seachem i just put a little in( a cap full) and my nitrite is down not a significant amount( about .25ppm) but the fish look good and are swimming around in a normal fashion + i decided to skip today's feeding to help stabilize the tank.

Same thing happened to me. I had a long tentacle anenome. I got hungry and ate my seahare. Needless to say I lost both animals and my nitrate levels went threw the roof. I changed about 30 percent water and cleaned my sand at the same time. I have had no problem since.
