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.
