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

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.
