And IMO is that you go buy an API master test kit, and watch your ammonia spike, and then watch your fish hit the bottom. Seriously, buy a test kit tomorrow (today), test the water every single day and perform a water change when ammonia goes over 0.25ppm. Keep it under that. Buy "Prime" to use with the water changes. After some time your nitrites will start to spike so test for that as well, and perform water changes. When your ammonia and nitrites have hit 0, and your nitrates go up, your fish will be safe... That is IF they make it. If you are actually worried, add a bunch of plants, since they will help with ammonia.
I think, don't take my word for it because I'm not sure and do not feel like searching, some of those fish will outgrow your tank.
