Red Water

ok, this one is new to me. I had a large cyanobacteria outbreak because i let my water change cycle laps a little. Did a 30% water change early this afternoon and now the water is red. All life in the tank does not seem to be affected at all, the temp is 75F pH is 8.26 salinity is 1.022. Is this just an algae bloom, and will a water change be enough to get rid of it?
