Next step would be a 4 day black out do a feeding and a 40% pwc
/ vacuum and wrap up your tank with thick black garbage bags no peeking during this process you fish will be fine then after the 4 days another 40% pwc
/ vacuum and with your tank water rinse all filter media and you should see a major difference
Then of course cut back on your lighting to 6-8 hours or even split your photo period if you have plants to 3 on 3 off 3 on or 4 on 4 off 4 on a timer will come in handy for this
