What is your water source? If you aren't using ro/di water with 0 tds, then you might be simply dumping nitrates back into the system with your water changes.

new sand and rock hold silicates it's basically a waiting game for it to run its natural course ,

High flow constant blowing off the rocks along with water changes will help speed process , I also found running fingers through sand on a daily basis helps release those silicates faster , I did that on several larger of my tanks at start up
