Lol ok, like I'm not trying to be rude, but I think we are having a miscommunication here.

Do you know your water stats? Like ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates?

Wait I remember you said you just added water and then like 25 minutes later added the fish? This means your tanks not cycled and you will be having ammonia and nitrite spikes in your tank for the next little while. I wouldn't recommend adding any more fish until your tanks cycled. They will more then likely die.

I thought you knew a thing or two about fish?? Why are you doing that in cups? And why are you posting pictures instead of telling me what the ppms read?

Sorry but this is frustrating..

Yeah pet stores suck. Your babys are in a lot of trouble 50ppm ammonia is deadly. Do a water change now say 15-20%. And do water changes daily if you want to save them.
