if your tank has been running for only a week DO NOT add anything else to it.
Not to go into too much detail but you will only be at the very start of your cycle and to be honest you are walking a fine line with just two fish let alone more.
Test your ammonia levels before doing a water change and if you see any (which you will) change out 50% of the water. Test again tomorrow and again, if you still read ammonia change out 50% again.
With fish in the tank you really need to be keeping the ammonia levels as low as phsically possible.
Until you get to the point where after 3-4 days of testing without a reading you are not ready for more fish.
It can be frustrating waiting for a tank to cycle, I've been there god knows how many times (4 this year alone) and have a tank in the first fortnight of its cycle now so I know how it feels.
For the sake of the fish keep up the water changes :)
