Hey there! Chiming in to see a couple things...

When was your tank set up? Did you go through a cycle period?
What fish did you add?

Youre gonna get spikes with the tank this new. They can tolerate to about 30 but if any spikes- could be an issue. Add a pouch of chemipure elite which will keep nitrate in check
