I have a 46 gallon tank with about 40 lbs of live rock, eheim canister filter 2234, uv
filter and hang on protein skimmer. I have 3 chromis, 1 rock blenny, 10 hermit crabs and five snails.
I would love to start adding coral to my tank but I understand the nitrate should be as low as possible. I can't seem to get my nitrate level below 10 ppm
. Everything else is at 0, ph is at 8.2. I have been doing regular 20% water changes about every 2 weeks.
Is my filter not powerful enough for my tank? Its rated for up to 60 gallons.
Does anyone recommend something like this to add to my filter media?

What else can I do?
