I did wonder if its something to do with the emergancy issue I had to deal with my water levels are all ok I took a sample to my local fish shop and they said its perfect could it be due to stress as it is a new tank only set up on tues evening x
I strongly suggest investing in your own liquid water test kit such as the API Master Kit, your tank is doing what is called a fish in cycle. You will need to test your water daily & do water changes according to the test results. Please read the attached & then ask questions:

Because you've added so many fish to a non-cycled tank you are going to probably have some challenges keeping them all alive. It is always to best to increase the number of fish slowly, over several weeks, so as not to overload the BB. I'm thinking your tank is overstocked even though they're small fish. Somebody else will need to chime in that part.
