Anycase, if you want to cycle your tank, you need to do something about the filter to keep it going 24/7 as it will eventually be home to the "good bacteria".
If you have to keep turning the filter off and on, it won't allow the bacteria to accumulate and / or die off.
Per your video, I can tell Drax loves all that swim room at his new home.
Ugh... you guys all seem to be so behind on my CONSTANT updates haha...
I sponged the filter outflow so now it's on 24/7. You can see the sponge in the video as the BRIGHT object that almost looks like a light near the top right of the tank. I may trim the sponge down so it's not so... large.
Just his eye went down once, just wish it would again...
