Re: Bacterial Bloom

Hi Matthew,

Maybe the nitrification bacteria or some other group of bacteria
normally feeding on organic wastes were starved to death because
of sudden cut off of available nutrients. These dead bacteria are
what causing the cloudy water condition or another group of bacteria feeding
on the dead bacteria. Just guessing. 

In future, could you please don't leave out any detail because the
answers you get might be completely off or incorrect and might
embarrass the person trying to help by responding to your post,
making him / her looking like a fool, if one is not discerning.
