40ppm nitrates is a little on the high side - maybe consider increasing the amount of water you change during water changes. Also, more live plants would help with keeping this in check.
+one. would not add any more fish to either tank and would step up water changes both in volume ,and frequency. Reducing the amount of food and frequency of feedings can help also.
Thanks. I just came back from vacation a couple days ago and I had a friend watch and feed the fish, I have a feeling he might have over fed them, needless to say, the fish have been on a diet for a couple days. I'll do big water changes this weekend and retest.
