Foaming in freshwater can indicate an excess in proteins in that water. Try increasing the amount and frequency of water changes and see if that helps.

Maybe the easy balance? Likely, it's as Fresh pointed out.....excess protein. Did the water change fix it?

Your water isn't that hard. It's moderate. I run 180 ppm and I'm moderate. My pH is 8.2-8.4. Your nitrates are pretty low as well.

Lower nitrates such as yours is a good thing. You don't want them over 40 ppm. I would seriously consider getting a liquid test kit from API if you want accurate water readings. Those test strips are garbage.
