If it was fully cycled you shouldn't have any ammonia. You will need to do water changes to get ammonia to 0 so the fish aren't suffering.

The tank wasn't cycled correctly. To avoid harm to the fish, return them and cycle the tank properly.

I don't think your cycle ever finished. You added 3 fish as well which is a heavy bioload for such a young tank. You will need to do water changes as needed to get ammonia back down to 0 until the cycle completes

I moved the damsels to my older tank for now and I put my other damsel in my quarantine tank because I can't put bother together in my other tank or they will pick on my tang and clown fish but I moved the damsels for now so I can re cycle the tank and see if I misses something when I allowed my daughter to help it's her first tank but just not sure what went wrong
