i test my PH in the middle of the day so the light has been on for some time. i just use an RO pre mixed saltwater mix from the fish store and my SG is just above 1.020. i'm having to do water changes 3 times a week because my levels just keep rising every time after i bring them down

Your SG is on the low side. What levels keep raising?

The nitrate and ammonia are the levels that keep rising, i do water changes which bring the levels down but the next day they seem to creep back up again. I have never been able to get the nitrate down. I am very careful what i feed the fish and ensure he eats all the pellets i give him, so the levels rising can't be due to over feeding. would you suggest i add some more clean up crew to the tank? at the moment i only have 4 hermit crabs and they must not be doing a very good job.

Any ammonia means that your tank is still cycling. Reduce your feeding and hope that the fish will survive.
