i have a 90 gallon tall and i just got a test kit for christmans do these sound okay
p.s. i have 6 RBP about 4-5- inches long
pH: 7.4
Nitrite: 0.1
Ammonia: 0.6
Well if the setup is fairly new one (less than 2 months) it just has not cycled properly yet. That means you do not have a decent amount of nitrification bacteria yet.

If, on the other hand, your setup is an older one, Your filter capacity does not match the bioload your Reds produce. Then to correct this, you need a good and big enough external canister filter, filled with mainly bio media (sintered glass or lava rock).
