The best way to reduce the ammonia and nitrates in a cycled tank is
frequent and REGULAR water changes. 20-30% water changes a week are
what I do. If the ammonia and nitrates are really high, I would do the
partial water changes every other day until they are in a normal
range--0 for the ammonia and 20 or so for the nitrates. Any chemical
you add to the water is actually a poison and should only be used as a
last resort. There is nothing like clean water for fish health. Clean
and change filter and filter media on days that you don't do a partial
water change so as not to disturb the bacterial colony. By the way,
water changes are a lot cheaper too.

excess nitrate and ammonia in the water. I used to use a product called
Nitra-Zorb or something like that... Thanks!
