Your ammonia and nitrite look very high from your photo. Do you use water conditioner? I would suggest changing at least 50% of your water every day with conditioned water in till ammonia and nitrite are in safe rang. I have been through this when i first got my newts, that is basically what i did. After about 2 or 3 days your ammonia and nitrite should test in safe rang consistently, then go to daily water changes of 15%. I don't know how experienced you are, but you don't need to mess with filter unless it gets clogged, bacteria on the filter is most impotent. Should take about 6 weeks to cycle aquarium.

Other people on this forum might be able to tell you if you're over stocking your tank,that might be why you have such high test results to. Good luck
