Thank you for the advise I shut off the tank light and the room lights just to let them settle and I hope it helps they are still breathing but also still upside down.
I feel so bad cause I was throwing a ball arond the house and busted the tank.
I feel so terrible that they are like this because of my careless actions. Sorry I need to vent somehow Any other advise is most welcome and if you figure out the dosage of clove oil I should try please let me know.

Sorry about your troubles. It sounds to me like your fish ae stressed and you may be experiencing a new cycle in your tank. The substrate that go tossed took a large part of the biological filtration with it. Can you post your current water parameters? Ph, temp, NO2, NO3, NH3, SG. I would keep some aged SW on hand and keep doing PWC to manage parameters.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

As mentioned, your new tank is probably cycling all over again. If you can't purchase the test kits, take a water sample to a decent LFS and have them do it for you. Ammonia and nitrite poisoning are not pleasant. You should be doing several large water changes daily, giving the tank heavy aeration....it only takes but a few hours for ammonia to reach toxic levels.
