Bacterial Clouds

Just got your grouse about periodic bacterial blooms in your tank. Are you
sure you are not overfeeding occasionally ?
But what really does it, is a massive water change together with gravel
siphoning, and canister clean up all at the same time.
What bacterial blooms are surmised to be, are dead bacteria who found
themselves suspended in the water, since they have lost their sessile hold
on the substrate
The equilibrium is so delicate, that I would not suggest more then a 10 %
water change every week.
