The yellow fish are gold barbs, the sliver fish appear to be red eye tetras. Sorry I can't help ID the filter but the picture is way too dark.

I will have to calculate how many gallons your tank is to figure out if you have room for more, and how many more it will allow with your current fishes. I'll post once I have done this.

Can you tell us how long your tank has been set up? How long was it set up before you put the fish into it?

Tank was setup before 21 days and after finishing fish less cycle I was adding up to 2 ppm ammonia in my tank every day up to more 7 days. Then yesterday only I add fish

I was thinking internal filter when I saw the filter photo. What's the turnover rate of that filter and what filter media are in there?

Your tank volume is 7.58 gallons. The fish you have are going to be the maximum limit for that tank, and as they grow to full size you may find that you need a larger tank for them. Gold barbs average 2.5 - 3.5 inches when full grown, but red eye tetras can get as large as 4 - 5 inches each when full grown.

I would strongly suggest not adding anymore fish to that tank and watch your water quality carefully as these fish grow. Keep up with your weekly water changes, 30% each week, and don't over feed them, and be prepared to move them up to at least 20 - 30 gallons later when they are full grown.

Good luck to you.
