I was going to do a larger tank test to see how long it would take but you just saved me the trouble. Did ammonia ever go over 1ppm?

Not on its own I over dosed it when I first started. But nothing a quik wc didn't cure

So, clean out that gooey mess then get some plants and fish in there and work on those camera shots... we all really like pictures.

10 gallons is pretty restrictive on what fish will fit, swimming room is the main factor here more so than water capacity. Smaller less active fish. There are some small rasbora (mosquito come to mind), I don't know what tetras might be ok. Some oto catfish maybe, dwarf corys. I can't think of any barbs small enough off hand, I have Cherry Barbs and they are too large.

Shrimp and snails always work in smaller tanks.
