Other than WC's, reducing in feeding, and over stocking, what's everyone's helpful additional remedies to lower nitrates overall? One of my tank's I somwhat have been overfeeding (yes, I know, dumb rookie mistake-idea lol) and did a WC last night, and just did a water test a day later, and the nitrates are reading about 40 ppm.

Do an extra water change this week and make it large to catch up.

Honestly, water changes are going to be simplest and probably most economical.

You could add an automated water change system.

You could add an algae scrubber.

You could at nitrate filter like in this thread on another forum:
