I need some help, I got a new tank, new filter. Bare bottom, I took the media from my old xp1 and put it in my xp4. It got cloudy so I got more media from the store and put it in there and its still cloudy.. is it a mini cycle or bacteria bloom? theres some kind of alge broken up on top of the water. what is it?!

We need more info on your water parameters (pH, NH4, NO2, NO3) before we can say.
Old media with nitrification bacteria will need some ammonium to live.

Anyway bacteria bloom is white-greyish, algae bloom green or brown.
Commonly new tanks get Diatoms first.
