Nitrates dropping?

Recommended Posts

I tested the water today after changing things in my 5 gallon betta tank. Sunday I did a about a 20 % water change and afterwards I had 10ppm nitrates. Today's test showed 5 ppm. I'm assuming the plants are using the nitrates. The only plant growth I've seen is the 2 anubias nana petite have put out a few new leaves. The 3 anubias nanas i got from petsmart i don't think have transitioned to submersed yet. And I just added the 2 little windelov java ferns yesterday. I know the dwarf sag and cryptocoryne are root feeders so I don't think they're doing much for the water. 

My question is when should I start using easy green? Should I wait for signs of deficiencies?
