I will agree with not overdoing the biospira, too much of a good thing is no good. Time is the only thing I can suggest at this point, and keep water testing, every day to every other day. Once the water quality is in the clear, I can suggest an effective medication that should help clear up the rest of your problem.
Thanks bettababy, I didn't overdo the biospora, in total about 3mls were added. I will post once the tank has stabilized, or if anything takes a turn for the worse.
Thanks everyone for all the advice and help.
