You added fish way to fast. How big is this tank?

You need to let your tank cycle. This can take 3-12 weeks. The ammonia in your tank is buring your fish.

Tank is 10g. So now tell what should i do ??

Cycling can be done with fish. You need to do a water change, 25% about 3 times week to prveent levels of ammonia and nitrites from becomeing toxic.

Add dechlorinator every time you do a water change and your fish have a descent chance of surviving the cycle none the worse for wear.

Thanks for such a nice quick reply from all of u. As i am using internet from my office. Tomorrow I will bring my all six fish picture so u can well help me more. :)

I don't want to let my fish die.

Alright, good.

Are these Tiger Fish Tiger Barbs?

I persoanlly would do a 10-20% change every day untill your levels die down. Thats what I did, and the cycle went by really fast.

It is okay to change water twice a day(i.e. every 12 hrs) or only Once a day.

Good job. Your Tiger Fish are Tiger Barbs. One of my favorites. :) Once you are done cycling, I would get 2 or 3 more, because they can get very nippy in small groups.
