Lighting is a 32 watt PC on fro 8 hrs. Nitrates are 10 and wont go lower. Already tried the 5 gal. water change........I would like a clean tank...Please help

how old and how big is your tank? looks like you might have a cyano outbreak which is common for new tanks that are going through cycling,especially since your nitrates are still high (should be at 0).

usually the cyano will eventually die off as the cycling completes. your clean crew should be taking care of the bloom. I would wait until after it's been cycled before adding new layers of sand
