Is the tank cycled?
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!

The tank is not cycled...you're going to have trouble. Do you have a water test kit? Keep ammonia and nitrites below 1ppm...

Before adding more fish, I would get a test kit and track your readings for the next couple of weeks. I suggest holding with what fish you've got... don't add anything else that is alive save for plants if you so choose to add those...

test your water daily and record the results in an excel or word file... I agree with Sharon's concern that the tank is not cycled. If a tank isn't cycled, you run the very high risk of your fish dying off.

If unfamiliar with this, do a keywordsearch for 'new tank syndrome'... that will explain it all...
