I also just brought a bigger plants
I wouldn't waste money on phosphate test kit, your reguolar water change plus plants will (should) handle that.

Numbers are not bad, so that's good. Not too high for the tetras you have, and good for the other fish and shrimp. Monitor the pH to see if it is stable or if it keeps slowly rising. If it stays where it is, fine.

We're here to offer assistance should anything occur.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
