Thanks I've been keeping fish for several years. I've kept RCS for a while but this is my first try with oebt.

Nice. What are the specs of the tank? How many do you have?

It's a 5gal fluval spec with a small piece of driftwood and some java moss.

There are 5 in there. I don't think they have reached maturity yet. They are roughly 1cm long. Two are blondes but I have heard that they don't always get color until they get older.

Tank parameters are
69 degrees
Ph 6.8
Ammonia 0ppm
Nitrite 0ppm
Nitrate 10ppm
Gh 3
Kh 3

I thought lower fh was good? And what does Tds mean? Also what can I do to get rid of the nitrates? That's pretty low already right?

You can add some floaters (I can give you some salvinia) if you can stop by.

You can buy a TDS meter off Evilbay for a few bucks. Or from Mordalphus (here in the forum)
