Dosing nitrogen with discus

I have a planted 55g with discus. I have pressurized co2. Have been dosing a multi micro, potassium, and iron. I do 50% w/c every other day. My nitrite and ammonia are 0. My nitrate test has 20ppm as the lowest color, so I'm guessing its between 5-10ppm. Everything is growing great. Should I be dosing nitrogen? Or should I keep things how they are? I've read discus are very sensitive to nitrates...

Suggest you just leave things as they are. Discus are not overly sensitive to nitrates, certainly not at the level in your tank - you're just fine.
