HAHAHAHA shhh it'll be okay. well make it through I promise! you will do more harm than good by doing something drastic. trust me I know what a fish tank freak out feels like but you gotta take it slow. you could have induced a mini cycle when you added those fish. how new are they? their bioload could have just been too much too fast. just do a twenty percent water change if you haven't already. If you did, then do another ten percent tomorrow.
