I would add more plants [there are many species in our plant profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top, select those that manage with low and moderate light] and no more fish at this time. Let the tank establish and see where it goes. Also, the nitrate test, is this with the API liquid test, and are you shaking Regent #2 for 2 minutes (not 30 seconds as in the instructions) as another member mentioned?

I'll have a look at the plants and pick out some good ones. Yeah I tried shaking it for longer, but the results were the same. Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

What about duckweed? Duckweed is a true nitrate remover. lol. I had bags full in my 10g tank, and even though there were a lot of fish since they had babies, all were growing up fine and healthy. The levels never got high. =o make sure you like it first though since it's hard to erradicate... Well not too bad.
