Was the tank cycled. I'm not a salty (yet) so I can't comment on the stocking but I can try to help on the water levels.

I'm afraid that's too many fish for a 14 gallon even if it were cycled. And, any readings of ammonia and/or nitrite would indicate that it isn't. How long has this tank been set up? For the health of your fish, is it possible to return them while you complete your cycle? For more info, please check out the stickies here at AA. There is a ton of great info here.

I agree, that is too many fish. What kind of damsels, clowns and goby?

Two or three SMALL ones tops. I'd take the damsels back. Depending on the type of goby you have I'd keep that and assuming you have the tradintional percula clowns, keep them.

In a 14 gallon? I'd say the clowns only. I've seen some pretty hefty percs (not to mention other species)!
