Agree with the water change, but try not to change too much. It will slow down the cycle and too many big water changes can be stessful on fish as well. I would strive to keep it under .5, most fish can tolerate that for short periods. Are they stressing at all? Eating still?
Make sure when you water change to get out any dying, decaying matter. It would help to lighten the feeding for a few days and syphon out any uneaten food.
Good luck.

I've only been making about 25% water changes and the fish don't seem to mind it. Actually I'm very surprised at how well the fish are doing. The ammonia was extremely high and they were more active and colorful than they have ever been. I just hope there is a sign of ammonia dropping within the next day or two.

no, I just refered to it as a damsel erlier because if I'm correct it is a type of damsel. Sorry for any confusion. Ammonia is still high today but the fish just keep getting brighter and brighter. They seem more active too.
