More water changes here. Check your test kit for defects. Is that expired? Your tiger barb has little chances of surviving unless the ammonia completely disappears.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I did see that.:) You just needed plenty of water changes to get rid of ammonia. Try to ask your friend or lfs for their established sponge filter media if you haven't so there will be enough bacteria to allow cycling of tank quickly.

How many days has the tank been stuck to ammonia? I remember in your other topic that you still have ammonia and zero in nitrites and nitrates.

It seems to me that you have been stuck to your ammonia for quite awhile now. Keep us updated with the water parameters when you're done with the established filter media. You need it to save your fish from ammonia toxicity.

No salt. Some may tell you to do so but I don't see how that will help. Your fish are not saltwater or brackish. You can add water conditioner.
