Are you adding 1/4 tsp (teaspoon) or 1/4 Tbs (tablespoon). You labeled it as tsb. If you are adding 1/4 Tbs, you'd be adding ~17ppm each time, which could account for your high nitrates. You should be adding something closer to 1/4 tsp, which would only be ~5ppm each time.

Most folks try to run nitrates in the 5-20ppm range
