You may wanna get a new one. I recommend Aquaclear. But for now you need to do the damage control. Do you have a test kit?

I have test strips that's all, and those are terribly unreliable. How much are the master test kits?

When I do use a test strip, its tells me the nitrites, and nitrates are high, which is understanble because my friend was not taking care of it at all. The first time I used my gravel vac it was bringing up black stuff

Yea the strips arent as reliable as API master kit but it will have to work for now. The master kit is about 20 to 30 USD. After we get this filter under control I will help you get cycled. A bunch of water changes are in your future if you don't have a temporary home for your fish with a 92 gallon tank, thats alot of.bucket lifting. We will talk about that later. When you have time read the article in my signature. It'd about fishless cycling but there is another about fish-in cycling.
