Tips on clearing up a bacterial bloom?

Well i was redoing my filtration setup, as i had my bioballs submerged and realize now that they work better elevated out the water. Well i disturbed them, and caused what i think is a bacterial bloom. Water is cloudy not green. Ammo, trite and trates all undetectable.


I dont have my fish, 4 blue dolphin cichlids and 6 yellow labs. Tank is a 210g.

Any tips on help clearing this up? I have been feeding every other day. water changes dont seem to have an impact.


TIA


-Cory

it will clear up on its own.

That bacteria is the one that eats up waste product and will produce ammonia as a bi-product. Keep an eye on those numbers.

If you are really worried about it, you can always do multiple smaller water changes.
