If the water tests done leave it. It is probably a bacteria bloom from cleaning to well

That should have said if the water tests good then leave it.

What happens is you cleaned a little to well and got rid of to much bacteria at once. Just leave it alone (but test water quality) it will regain bacteria in a week and be fine.

To better answer you question it can be harmful if ammonia builds up. If it does then only change water don't clean. Sucking up food that wasn't ate is fine t do
