Cloudy water during the fishless cycle

I am cycleing my 20 gallon aquarium with fish food and my water has started to get a little cloudy. I am assuming this is from the fish food. My ammonia is around 3ppm and my nitrites are at .20 ppm. My nitrates are 0. Can a do a water change to clear up the water or will that effect the cycle?

Most likely a bacteria bloom. Sure you can do a water change, not a really a big deal. Pretty normal when cycling a tank.

personally, i wouldn't worry about it unless it continues after the tank is cycled. all sorts of weird things can happen when cycling.
