do water changes until the levels are pretty low and keep doing it. it's going to be a long hard road to save those guys.

try doing a big water change to bring the nitrite all the way down and monitor it daily to make sure it doesnt get too high

This isn't an attack on you and please don't give up on the hobby its very rewarding... however this forum is established to help new poeple like yourself .. please take what the poeple here have to say unlike ur local fish store we don't post on this forum to make payroll..meaning we don't get paid. Everyone has messed up and do even after doing it for many years( i just did).. but be patient for your own pocket book.

In my experince water changes at 30% a day wont bring the levels down fast enough the cost of the salt water would be way more then that of the fish. .. just my honest opinion. This might be harsh for the fish lovers, but id continue the cycle as normal.

Everyday at least 20 % for the next week at least till those nitrites are. 0.50 then ur fish might have a chance but at 2.0 or. In your case almost a 5 there is no chance
