If your tank is established you should be fine. I rearranged mine numerous times and most recently I took everything out water to.

You should be fine, just test and keep some mixed saltwater on hand in case.

Could I have trigged a bloom and that's what's causing the cloudy water?

By bloom i take it your referring to Bacteria blooms and no that is not likely the case. Fine sand being disturbed and blown around can take a few days to settle or be filtered out depending on your filtration. Carbon will help clear it up as will a filter sock or polyfiber pad.
