    If you use Seachem Prime to condition your water, it will bind up to 4ppm of ammonia and turn it to ammonium (not toxic to fish) for up to 48 hours. This means that your fish are safe for at least...

    Since your 6.6g is not cycled, I would move all the fish to their new tank with the old filters. This will increase the water volume so that ammonia and nitrites don't build up to beyond 0.5ppm as...

    For the fish that you have (minus the loach since I have not kept a loach before), I haven't found the KH to matter as long as the other water parameters are stable during and after a water change.

    Check the ph of your tank. If the PH is below 6.6, you should do a water change to get it back up to above 6.6. I am assuming the ph of your tap water is above ph 6.6.

    Just keep up with the water changes. As long as the fish are eating and the water is clean, you should see healing in the fins within a week.

    I would think that a sustained rapid boil for 15-20 minutes should do the trick if you don't want to use bleach.

    Bleach (non-scented), rinse, use prime, rinse, let it completely dry out for 2 week, and then boil. That should have you covered.
