Bacterial bloom?

Hello all! So I have this 10 gallon tank with 3 glo dannios and I woke up one morning to see that the water was cloudy. Well, by the next day it was so cloudy that I can hardly see anything inside! It's a milky color and you can actually see the mysterious substance swirling around in there and I was wondering, is this a bacterial bloom or something else? I tried doing a water change and putting in a new filter, but no change. Also, about a week ago 1 of the 3 original dannios I had died or jumped out and I never found a body so I wonder if that had something to do with this. The tank has been running for over three months now and the water tested fine, no nitrites or ammonia. Thanks in advance!

Here is some information to help with the bacterial bloom. What did you do to the tank the prior 5 days before you saw the issue?

Thank you I'll check it out. Nothing was done to the tank before this happened.
