Thanks.

Reading the thread I was sure a water change was necessary, so did about 50% change. Retested and redosed ammonia to around 4ppm. Nitrates have dropped to around 20ppm, which is much better than before. Nitrites were still quite high though, going violet after the 5 minute wait, even after the water change so they must have been high.

Is a further water change recommended to get nitrites down further?
