One less thing in the tank. Also, disperses heat more efficiently.

i started to cycle on 7/1. I have been testing the water daily but i do not see any changes in the ammonia yet... the water did clear up though.

My mother has a small 10 gallon tank but she has 4 goldfish and 2 other fishes as well as 5 tetras.... WAY over stocked!! So she made me take a gold fish. I figured if anything it would help out with the cycle but i did not want to use fish for it since its not cool.

So he has been poopin up a storm since last night and the water is now starting to smell like an aquarium lol, yet i still do not see any changes in the levels of ammonia/nitrites/nitrates. Am i missing something?
