You have to down your protein skimmer in order to use chemi clean and yes it will come back water changes and fixing the problem is the best advice I've been given. I'm also puting in a media reactor this weekend

Over feeding results in decaying food that raise nutrients if you don't have enough water circulation there could be dead zones and if your cuc isn't good enough it hangs around.

As recommended, look into Chemiclean. It will not harm your fish, corals or invertebrates.

Chemiclean is just a temporary bandaid. It won't fix the problem. You need to reduce nitrates and phosphates.
What do you feed, how much and how often? What filtration do you have? How big is your tank and how much rock do you have?

If you feed a lot you need to do larger or more frequent water changes. Or remove the excess nutrients through other filtration.
