you can't keep track of a cycle and know what is happening when you don't have a test kit.
The fish can be going crazy for various reasons, temperature, ammonia, nitrites, ph, ect. The only thing i can suggest is a water change, and get a test kit.

Agree with Trevor, plus if this is a new tank (I'm assuming it is) get a bottle of Seachem's "Stability" to add the necessary bacteria immediately.

yes, you will need the fish to act as a source of ammonia to build your cycle anways.

also if its your Dojo thats darting thats sort of normal :)
when my dojo are excited they dart across the front of my 5gal and they are fine :)
just keep a close eye on them and listen tot he above posters
get a bottle of "Cycle" at your local fish store [LFS] and itll help you with your cycle process or Seachems "Stability"

if you can find Seachem's "Stability" that would probably be your best bet :)

Just noticed, I think you have two threads on the same issue. The other is entitled "Fish Tank Help." I suggest you combine them or close one off. Keeping all the info in one thread makes it easier for various members to follow and offer help that might get missed in two different threads.
