I have a planted 10 gallon tank that has been cycling without fish for the summer, and it has been about 2 months by now, so I hope it's ready:
pH= 7.6
High Range pH= 7.4
Ammonia= .25ppm
Nitrite= 0ppm
Nitrate= 5ppm

-> Is some Nitrate going to hurt my betta? How about the pH level?
-> The tank that my betta is currently living in has the same level of pH, so is it ok?
-> Do I introduce my betta into this new tank the same way as if I just brought him home from the shop? Like start to add water from the new tank into the old tank until he is comfortable with the new water?

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your responses! :-D

Thank you Veloran and Straubrey for your replies.

Every time I checked my ammonia, it was never 0 for some reason. Just now, I did another water test, ammonia is finally 0 (Nitrite is still 0, but Nitrate is still around 5ppm). Straubrey, I think you are right, I tested my water soon after I added in about 2 gallons of water in the 10 gallon tank Tuesday night, so the ammonia level was not stable before.

->If I forget whether I add the water chlorine remover conditioner, can I add more now? Is 4 more drops of chlorine remover in 10 gallon tank going to hurt my fish in case if I did add it last time, but I add more now just in case?
->Is Nitrate safe? I have heard it has to be 0, but I also heard it's fine. At what level, it would be consider dangerous to my fish?
