It usually depends on the fish some can handle more than others. So those levels could cause a fish to die.

That level of nitrate isn't in itself deadly. However, nitrates directly impact a fishes immune system causing it to react slower and less efficiently. The 40ppm of nitrate could have caused his death and is the most likely factor at the moment.

Nope, fake plants cannot leech nitrate
