Sounds good. What fish are you getting aggression from? Are the blushing tetras picking on each other?

Try removing all the fish next time you wanna add any, rescape the tank, add the new fish and then the old fish back to eliminate their pecking order

If all of your levels are fine then when ever you feel like it. Just do a water change to bring those trates down and leave the lights off after adding them for a day
