Usually it's only 2 pellets to times a day. I also pre-soak them so that the pellets are already expanded.

I think your fish is just backed up w/ detritus... I hope that is the case.

Nitrates: below 40 ppm
Nitrite below .5 ppm
Hardness: high
Alkalinity: 40 (low)
pH: acidic

Should I do a water change?

I'm so not used to testing for things. Someone please give me a rundown? I don't want a dead fish.

Well the nitrItes really need to be at 0.. anything else is unhealthy. You should do water changes until it gets down to at the very LEAST, .25. 0 would be better.
