Update:

Skeeter is still alive! I've been doing 25%-50% water changes every other day. Yesterday I did a full water change because I got new substrate. I really like the look of my tank now. I'm currently boiling some driftwood to get it ready to go in in place of the pink decoration. I'm going to buy an API master kit today, and some fertilizer tablets for the new plants. Skeeter likes resting on the Rotala Indica. Here's a picture:

It looks like you have a bit of nitrites and a lot of nitrates. Looks almost cycled. But needs a water change to get nitrates down. Good going!

Check your tap water for nitrates. It shouldn't be that high with all the water changes you've been doing.

Copy! I'll post results in a few minutes. That nitrate test takes the longest!

Then I added two drops of this to a gallon of water. Let it sit for 10 minutes and this is what I got: I don't see much of a change, if any.
