With your numbers still elevated while going through a cycle, I would opt to not do any rearranging until it's complete. While your fish may not show any outward signs of stress, he is going through some amount of stress with ammonia and nitrite's in your system. Keep it as stress free as possible.

Diatom bloom is normal and the sign that the tank is maturing. It should get out of control for a few days and then recede after that.

Still using Kent Purple Tech?
