You should do a water change to lower the nitrates, at least before any fish are added. If you are using the API liquid nitrate test kit, you are aware that Regent #2 should be shaken for a good 2 minutes before adding the drops to the test tube? The instructions say 30 seconds, but this often results in faulty and high readings.
