Ammonia and nitrites are zero, just kinda high nitrates. Forget to say the rest, It's 16gallons, temp 78* 5 zebra danios, 3 platies, 2 goby plecos, a bunch of java ferns and an Anubias
nana. I haven't vacuumed the gravel but since it's gotten kind messy lately I stirred it up with a net before I did a water change. Also rinsed out the cartridge already last waterchange in the bucket of old water, the water turned completely brown, but it didn't seem to help anything.
Also, about the platies, my water is kinda soft, although I've raised the ph to just above neutral with baking soda, the hardness is still only about 100ppm, I was wondering if maybe that might be bugging the platies finally, I know they're supposed to like harder basic water.
