If this is a total of 6 fish in this tank. I would say defiantly you are over stocked. 

Great article for beginners :)

Do you have an API test kit? We should be looking at all the numbers...ammonia, nitrites and nitrates. Changing your Media in your filter is never a good idea. That is where all the good bugs are to keep your tank cycled. Plus when you added in more fish to the tank it made your cycle go crazy. The filtration can keep up with the waste they can produce 😮
