Question regarding water parameters

Given that my tank is heavily planted for a 5.5gallon, is it normal to have 0 nitrates?

I am fairly overstocked with a betta, 8 pygmy corys, 1 nerite and unknown number of ghost shrimp (last only saw 1) but had about 8 ghost shrimp. My betta has been keeping his tankmates stock in check by turning them into snacks.

I have been feeding them betta pellets and frozen brine shrimp and shrimp wafers but can't seem to get my nitrates to increase.

Haven't done any water changes in a week. Should i get rid of some salvina minima since I believe they are absorbing all the nitrates.
