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?

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]
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.
