Don't stop the filtration. Just get some KNO3 dry fertilizer and add it into your aquarium. You may have enough fish and a small amount of plants to where you don't need to dose nitrates. Just keep an eye on it by testing every couple of days and see what your tank is doing. =]

---I like fish. They don't talk back, bark or pee on the floor.
