    always test your water BEFORE the water change (personally i started a spreadsheet and kept track of everything that was tested & what i did in the tank). Repeat after me - I will not add any fish until fully cycled for two weeks, repeat as necessary :D
    Most filter manufacturers test their filters gph when empty, adding the biological, chemical & mechanical media reduces the amount of water turned over (filtered) by about half. you can upgrade your filter or add another, personally i use a canister plus a hob filter.

    + to JudiJ. Do not add any more fish until after your tank is fully cycled for at least 2 weeks.

    Your goal while you are cycling, BTW, is to keep your ammonia and nitrites at .25 or under. anything above that requires a water change. You may or may not have nitrates yet. if they go above 20ppm, do a water change.
    You may be making daily w/c during your cycle period - it all depends on your A Ni and Na readings.

    good luck

    ++ to the above 2 posts^^....keep doing those water changes...get more filtration....NO MORE fishies until you are cycled, or you will just make it harder on yourself and it will take longer to do...be patient, you'll get there
