Whats up with my tank mini cycle?

Ok guys here's something that's striking me as random since the only thing I have changed is the amount of CO2 Booster I have been putting in...

For the longest time It has been sitting at the following stats
  • PH: 7.5
  • Ammonia: 0
  • Nitrite: 0
  • Nitrate 20 ppm
Tonight I was doing my weekly tank maintainence and got some odd fluctuations
  • PH: 7.7
  • Ammonia: .25ppm
  • Nitrite: .25 ppm
  • Nitrate: 0 ppm
The only thing that I have changed is adding API CO2 booster 2x a week and using Leaf Zone a bit more frequently

Tank has been running now for four years consistantly

There have been 0 added fish and 0 lost fish 0 new plants 0 new other items

Tap water registers 7.5 and 0 ppm across the board.

Should I be worried or is this a sign that my plants are taking to the added CO2, leaf zone and pro-grow I've been adding?
