I've just responded to your filter question in a separate thread. This thread has answered my question about this being a new tank, and I now see why you got the ammonia insert. I still say not to use it.
But you are ging to have some very stressed fish if this is a new tank and clearly it is not yet cycled. Please read my other post on the cycle process which should explain what's hapening in your tank.
I strongly suggest you get to a fish store and buy a bottle of "Cycle" or similar product. This is a bacteria supplement that will "seed" your filter immediately, adding live nitrosomonas and nitrobacter bacteria to get the biological (nitrogem) cycle going to handle the ammonia (and subsequent nitrite). The cycling process will last somewhere from 2 to 8 weeks, but my experience has been with Cycle it will only be two weeks. Don't add any more fish until the tank is fully cycled.
