I don't think you can get an accurate reading for your ammonia and nitrites while using an ammonia eliminator. There's a chance your readings could be normal, or way higher.

Very true, Fluff. Try another test kit or see if your LFS will test your water. I am still betting on a mini-cycle due to the filtration change. You really need to find some way to house your fish for a couple of weeks. Maybe see if the LFS will porvide foster care for you. It will be an ever ending battle with fish in there. You can try a large water change, like 30% and see if that makes a difference.

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

What was your acclimation process... a quick change in salinity can kill corals... also the ammonia is definately a factor
