Today the water is back to being crystal clear. Tested and found 0 nitrate and 0 phosphate. Iím going to do a water change this afternoon because all that bacteria die-off left an unpleasant smell. Everything else is back to normal. So glad that experience is over!

I was wrong, there was a casualty from the bacterial bloom. The drop in oxygen saturation and pH took its toll on my sand-sifting sea star, and it died.
