I just bought a master kit froom API and used it after reading the instructions, here are my readings:

Ph 8.0

Ammonia 1.0

Nitrite 1.0

Nitrate 10

t's a 55 gallon, with one large bala shark, about 8 inches, two unknown fishes about 7 inches each, one pink gourami, about 5 inches, one pleco , 3 inches and two small bala sharks, about 1 and a half inches.

nitrates are fine. pH is rather way 2 high for those fish. ammonia and nitrite and pH are your main problem. was the tank cycled?

how long did you run the tank before adding fish?
it looks like you set it up and put the fish in right away. if these are you current readings, there is a chance it will only get worse before it gets better. if you have an ammonia spike, you could be in trouble.
