Think I may set up a few tubes of denitrate in one of the bio chambers.
Maybe run it off a small power head in my sump

I will look up some of the fish you have but to think that you have a 180g aquarium & what looks to be a small bio-load...I'm not sure why the high nitrate. I might have another method but it more of a test for freshwater..I will get into it later.

How much PWC are you doing every week. I'm surprised that you have some nitrate in your water up there. I tested a few of my friends and they had 0.

I test regularly and do a 50%+ PWC when it's gets 30-4ppm

What's your experimental nitrate reducer?
I'd try it as I have several other tanks I can experiment with.

Search up DIY water changes on YouTube. Eraujoey or something like that has a great walk through on how to set up an automatic water changer...

I had a phosphate and nitrate problem were alge was taking over my tank. I bought a phosphate and nitrate reducer Reactor. And I use Dr Tim's pellets alge is gone and levels are dropping. Research the use of Reactors and you'll understand. Good luck.
