So I know now it was that plant because it was kind of rotted and smelled horrible.

Carlos, only decomposed Draecena could pull a nitrate level up, but not "standard" aquatic plants! Although there may be some exceptions: e.g. plecos ravaging the plants if it has a lack of green food (with spirulina) and the wood in aquarium. I believe, it's not your case...

I'm not trying to change anyone's thinking. After it was pointed out that Dracaena plants are not fully water plants I did some research and it turns out that as they die from too much constant water they will decompose and the roots, if I remember correctly, will release small, but constant, amounts of nitrates and CO2.

I'm not a fish expert, don't claim to be one, but I've had these fish for a long time with no issues whatsoever. Water quality has always been good with normal levels. I recently started messing with plants without knowing and when it was brought up about that plant I did a water test and they were high.

I understand that's too many fish for a 55 but they don't all go in the 55.
