Just wanted to update this with progress and a question...
It turns out the noise from the canister IS the thermostat on the heater, not trapped air, which is what I thought due to the consistency of the noise happening every 20 minutes exactly so I'm pleased.
My question though now is I'm fishless cycling with Ammonia and it's been 9 days but I'm yet to register Nitrite. I've dosed it to roughly 3ppm and I was expecting to at least see some progress by now. Is there a general timescale for Nitrites to appear?
