32ppm is a bit high for some sensitive sps ,IME ,but won't harm anything you have currently. I'd wait it out with a a few water changes. Personally , I've used carbon dosing( vodka and vinegar ) for over 8 years with 24?7 skimming to keep NO3 under 1ppm and P04 around 2/3ppm even with heavy feeding. A sulfur denitrator is another option for nitrate control I've used with success before going to carbon dosing.
