I see you going along good ....the nitrates on a reef should be 0 . And 20 and below on a FOWLR

CORALS THEN THAT Water has to be on point.
If you are using any sponge then it should be cleaned every 2-3 days more then that and your nitrates will be high.
I use a refugium with chaeto and my nitrates have been at 0, but had a brake out of cyano
bacteria and took out the chaeto and it went back up to 20:-(
So when it comes to filtration keep it as natural as possible. It really helps
