Just decided to do some testing with my water at my home tank.
Tests were done with Aquarium Pharmaceutical's test kits.
10 Gallon set up for over 1 year.
air stones, driftwood (I assume it's malaysian)
Java Moss and Anacharis (added Anacharis same time as the Amanos and the Otos)
8 Corydoras Aeneus (2 of them are 3 month old babies), 2 amano shrimp, 1 Otocinclus (had 2 more that died recently)

Water change done on Saturday at 50% (nitrates still same even after doing the change. Tested on Saturday, and then on Tuesday) and changed the carbon and filter.
I've had the corys for a LONG time. Had 3 otos and 2 died. (LFS said Nitrate was too high, antoher shop said the temp was too high and a combo of both might have stressed it out). Amano Shirmp were gotten last Wednesday.
Type of food served:
spinach, Hikari Algae wafers, Marineland Bio-Blend
Are the Nitrates still too high? Nitrates in my tap and after conditioning are at 0ppm.
