I tested ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates yesterday and they were 0/0/5ppm respectively. I also show 7.8ph.
Water seems OK. I would only add one or at most two cichlids, wait a few days, add another, etc. That should handle the nitrification issue. Beyond that, it may be something with the fish themselves. Any chance you can aquarantine in another tank, even a cycled 10g will handle one new fish at a time.
