    if it isn't cycled isn't the AMM fairly high? (anything over 0.0 ppm)

    What is your AMM, could be AMM poisoning?

    Also, what size is this tank? And why do you have a goldfish (coldwater) and Bala Shark (tropical) together? Just for the record both those fish get HUGE. (Especially the bala sharks)
    RIP Shark Bait, my Red Tail Shark :(

    Look how big he is:

    And he isn't full sized yet. Also they like to be in packs/schools of three to five (someone can check that number but I think that is the proper sized school).

    Sentences and punctuation would REALLY help us help you. I am not willing to attempt to make sense of that word salad.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    You changed the filter? You mean the media inside the filter because if so, you have lost the bacteria in the tank they are in.

    I don't know what size tank you have planned for them but goldfish are cold water fish and bala sharks are warm water fish. Not only do they not belong together, they both get very large and need a large tank.

    Bala Sharks also belong in schools. How about taking them back to the store, get your tank cycled and then stock it with fish suitable to the size of it?

    Cycling below as well as goldfish growth rates.

    What is the filtration on the 50g?

    Any reason you cannot move that filtration to the 90? [Still not big enough for the bala btw]

    This will move your entire functioning BB colony to the larger tank.
