If you use both you won't need a water change... But it took my 56 gal a week to clear up... I tested it for 3 days in a row and everything except ammonia was high... Then on the 7th day everything was at 0... With your tank being way smaller it should cycle quicker... And with the stability... Follow the directions... Although I added a little extra...

It's hard to make out, but it may just be diatoms or something.

Why is the heater off?

Is it normal for nitrates to come down?
