I would keep the NO3 lower than 35ppm especially since your overstocked the less stress on the fish the better.

"That's impossible. Even in a well-stocked tank, nitrites will be present. If you do not have any, this will mean your tank has yet to cycle and will start producing highly toxic ammonia instead of no3."
Yes and no. Most test kits that can read down to the 1ppm value are not often sold to the conventional aquarist, so yes, there will be nitrate present, no matter what, but not all test kits can pick the stuff up at such s.

it could be below 35 the drip kit only goes between 20-40 and it looks closer to forty then 20.

Wow that is REALLY overstocked. . .assuming I did my math right, (and I wouldn't count on it ) you have approximately 73" of fish in your tank , and that is with me only counting some of the tetras as one inch and they can grow to two. . .if I were you, I would at least take back the clown loaches and the bigger of the two plecos, and maybe the tiger barbs. . .they are somewhat aggressive fin nippers.
