The only think I see that I don't like in my tanks is your Nitrate. Its not real bad but I wont let mine above 20. If there is no ammonia in the tank then the only thing I can suggest is a water change. That's always the first thing I do if I see something that don't look quite right to me.

Your nitrates are most likely twice that.. those test strips are highly inaccurate.. you should be doing 2 50% wc's weekly.. the jd looks ok but it's fins look a bit clamped. .

No offense please, you should get your self a liquid api test kit to get a better idea where the levels really lay..

With the stock you have in a 30 gallon I would say around 50% change twice a week.
