Do you want to reduce NH3 and nitrites both?
If yes, then for ammonia absorption you can use zeolite in the filter and for nitrites use live floating plant like frogbits.
And maitai less feeding, no overcrowding.

Grow plants and/or algae in the tank. They'll eat up the nitrates as they grow

I hav no experience with bio-pellet.
permissible nitrate levels differ from species to species. like guppies can liv in kestopur khaal and Discus requires zero nitrates....its completely dependent on what you stock and how much you stock, thn comes the filtration part... :)
