buy fritzzyme turbo start 700 and put it inside your uncycled tank asap. take out those feeders...your red belly won't eat anyway if it is stressed out. what you should have done was setup your tank brand new tank then let it keep running for 2hrs with no fish then after everything has stabilized like the temp add/empty the smallest bottle of turbo start 700 into your 30gal then add your red belly and that's it. this turbo start cycles your tank in 24hrs. I wouldn't do this if it were mine but this is your only choice for now.

Also keep in mind at this size foods like brineshrimp,bloodworms etc are best,never feed goldfish to your fish.
Do frequent water changes (daily or so).
