    Have you cycled your tank or is it still cycling? Fish or no fish? What does it smell like?

    Lack of planning on your part doesn't justify an emergency on my part.

    It is still cycling. I have a cichlid. It has an underground filter and a powerhead. I haven't used the quick filter but intend to tomorrow.

    What kind of cichlid? What size is the tank?

    healthy fish tanks do not smell. If your tank has a bad odor it's a sign that something needs fixing.
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
    125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
    75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
    60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

    Do you have sand in the tank. Gas pockets can build up in the sand and smell rotten. Your tank is going to be too small for that fish, tho.
