Blood parrots reach what, 8" each? They have a bioload of a 16" fish. The plecs, without knowing what specie they are, can easily outgrow yoru tank.
Did you ask your BP's if they are happy? Would you like living in a small container with 9 other people and you all live in your waste?
This is what Bettababy has really helped me with; take a piece of paper, and cut it into 8 8" pieces, with 2 5-10" pieces of paper. Place them in front of your tank. Is there really enough room for everybody?
How are you 'trates only .01? Either your tank is not cycled, or you used your test kit wrong. A tank with live inhabintants should always have more than 2ppm of 'trates.
The best thing you can do right now is to get everybody out and into proper homes.
Can we have a full-tank shot please?
