You need chlorinater before you do any water changesm and you need to do water changes now!...
YOU NEED TO GET A LIQUID TEST KIT!!! it's as simple as that. Although liquid test strips work, like cody said, they are completley inaccurate. You tank is still cycling, like spoon said....to get your tank to the proper level you are looking at 30-35% water chages daily until your bacteria's settle out.
I know you said you were not a fan of water changes, but once you get the hang of it (which you will doing one almost everysingle day! :) ) they really do not take that long and are neccessary for your fish.
Buy a bottle of dechlorinator and get to changing your water!!!!
