Stop over feeding your fish and do larger water changes.
They are in abundance because there is food for them to be in abundance.
Even if your fish eat all you feed them it is still turned to waste and must be dealt with.
Possibly just one or the other of my suggestions would work, but I think both may be appropriate?

Those are large 'waste creators'.
Weekly if not bi weekly wc may help also.
