Your tank has not cycled, and I would not add any more fishes for the next three to six weeks, lest rising ammonia levels from waste created by fish, and fish foods offered begins to kill the fish which in my view,WILL be the result.Would test the water daily, and be prepared to change 40 to 50 percent of the water any time ammonia levels rose above .25 according to test kit.You do have a test kit no?
Unless you have borrowed some seed material from an existing established aquarium,,your tanks biological filter will NOT allow the safe addition of more fishes at this time.
What are NORMAL as you say readings for ammonia,nitrites,and nitrAtes at this time?
