whats high? if the levels are not too bad maybe you could use amquel or somthing to help detoxify the nitrates and nitrites? i just cycled my 150gal with 13, 2 to 3 inch cichlids in it and i used amquel. the darn fish started laying eggs before the nitrite spike went down. but i have to admit that i used media from my 20 galoon tank to spike my new tank so the cycle was not as bad or as long as usual. but the amquel seems to work.
