I don't even know whats going on anymore

This is my first time using ADA Amazonia and sofar I don't even know what I'm doing wrong.

I first started this tank in mid June of 2012

PH 6.4
Nitrite 0
Ammonia 0
Nitrate 20 PPM WTF!?!?

So far this tank has been a "planted tank" since mid july after I ended up killing some shrimp *nitrates were at 5ppm so I thought it was fine, only a few died, I moved the rest." The weird thing about it all is that when I had shrimp they got berried. Most of the time if the waters bad they will refuse to mate.

So I've been noticing a lot of my plants are dying or wilting. I Also my plants get a coating of the dirt/debris from the substrate. I don't think this should be happening. I do run my tank with air bubbles. I don't have a canister filter. *too expensive for me*

This is what my tank looks like. Well there are more plants now.
