When it comes to the fish side of things, gh and kh aren't that much of a concern. If you have ph stability issues however, maybe some kh issues (too low). The goal for ammonia and nitrites is to keep them at 0. Usually nitrates need to be kept at 40 or below, but planted tanks can change that up a little.

The big thing is get a liquid test kit. Test strips are very unreliable and don't give you enough detailed info to make the right decisions. They are very known for being unreliable as well.
