What is the tank size? It looks awfully small for that many fish. 6 guppies + a school of neons would be pushing it even for a 10 gallon. As for the water issues, water changes will help bring down the nitrates. But if your nitrites are that high then your cycle must have crashed.

How long has your tank been set up for? Have you tested your tap water?
