Long Term Clouding of water after adding BIO-Spira?

Has anyone else experienced long-term clouding after introducing BIO-Spira into their system? My tank finally cleared from the flourite mess...then a day after I added the packet...It's all turned cloudy again...It's been about 4-5 days since I added it.

The same thing happened on my 29g tank that I used to have...and it never cleared up no matter how many water changes I did...

I am running a Water Polishing Pad, Activated carbon and Purigen in this tank and it seems as if nothing will fix this!

If your polishing pad, carbon, nor purigen will remove it, then I'd put my money squarely on it being a bloom of bacteria, which seems to be exactly what you're wanting anyway. I suggest that you let it run its course.

I used Bio-Spira once and didn't have any sort of long-term clouding because of it, now there was a bacterial bloom, but I expected that. Then there was my 'I have no idea what I'm doing with fertilizer' period, where I reached new levels of green water fun. Was your 29g really cloudy from start to finish, how long did you have it?
