What are the readings for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate? What is your water change schedule? How long has the tank been set up? Any recent additions?

Ammonia is at 0
Nitrite is at 1.0
Nitrate 20 ppm
PH 7.4/8 maybe

The tank it a few years old..although I recently redecorated adding sand and a new filter ( in addition to my original filter)
