Well your nitrates are bottoming out (so you need to add more - If your sure the test is accurate)

I think you also need to increase your phosphate levels.

Also your missing alot of trace ferts.
You need to order some!

You haven't got all the lighting in the world so demand will be less but they still need them.

Concentrate on your dosing regime and investigate why your tank hasn't cycled.
I hope you haven't got any fish in there!
