is your tank cycled? seems like if you just setup the canister filter.. you aren't cycled yet. those fish will either die or suffer from ammonia burn. i highly suggest researching about how to cycle a tank and then add in the fish once you read 0 across the board when testing your water. if you are cycled (because you used bacteria from an older tank), then please ignore my post
