    He should have at least 10 times as much live rock in that system.

    Canister filters (especially with ceramic rings and bio balls) are known to produce really high nitrates. He's going to have to do quite a few big water changes. to basically change all of that water. Then replace the canister filters with a nice big skimmer.
