Get rid of the fish. Back to the LFS. No need to the PWCs that way either. Dump the fake rock (if there is). Get some base, or live rock, and throw a grocery store shrimp or two in there for the ammonia source. Again, see the article.

Sounds like you have way too many fish too. I have a 20 gallon and I have 3 fish and that is pushing the bioload. I would definitely cycle first, otherwise, you're killing fish and wasting cash....who wants that? Your local fish dealers will buy back your fish. Get a frozen shrimp, drop it in there, eat the rest for dinner Let the shrimp rot in there and cycle your tank. Then, after about 2 months, you should be ready. I wouldn't put in more than 3-4 fish tops, one at a time, allowing about a month in-between new fish. It's a hobby for the PATIENT. Did I mention PATIENCE? LOL.
You'll get great advice on here from people who know tons more than I ever will. I've had my tank for one year, and thanks to these guys, all fishies are alive and thriving. Best of luck!
