Also, I have been using Tetra Plus, but I also have API Stress Coat. Would either of those help?

Those are both good conditioners as such, but neither deal with ammonia. Prime (Seachem) and Ultimate (Aquarium Solutions) do, and there are a few others I can't remember. It will say on the label if they do.
Get yourself some floating plants when next at the store; these are fast growing so they will help a lot with ammonia. We have some species in our profiles; some stem plants also work floating, my favourite is Brazilian Pennywort, also in the profiles. But even common duckweed which the store will probably give you (or it will come with plants or fish
) is good for this, it grows like a weed and that means it is taking up ammonia.
