If you washed the lettuce off first, then that is not the problem.
How does the water test for ammonia and nitrites?
Had the light been on for a while, before feeding? It takes the fish some time to wake up.

I would take some water to the store to be tested, or better yet, buy an API freshwater testing kit. Your tank is heavily stocked, with fish that are known to produce lots of waste.
I would not use Aqua Safe as a substitute to water changes. I would test water daily and preform water changes to keep ammonia, nitrates, and nitrates at safe levels. In a cycled tank, without overstocking problems, ammonia and nitrites should always test zero.
It's hard to say for sure what problem you are seeing, but having the water tested will be a good start in finding a solution.
