Regular WEEKLY20 to25 percent water changes,gravel vaccuming a small area of the tank with each water change,Not overfeeding or over stocking the tank. I would also seriously consider the extra filter for this tank.
Cool down...we don't even know if the test kit is working properly...1077, most fish would die within 1 hr. at 8ppm, Just think of it this way, fresh cool water's going to be flowing through it's gills...
I will back you on an extra filter...
