Is there a way to tell if there is a bacteria infection still in the water??

The reason I ask is that I just set up my tank at a new home, and it was clear yesterday, and today it seems to be a little murky. Does this mean that bacteria has been "re-born" in my tank, or is the filtration need to be changed?

If the filter medias were not submerged in water the bacteria are dead... The new change could be anything though.. Do you have driftwood in your tank?

I figured it could be anything at this point. I did not keep my media out of the water. I don't want to kill all the bacteria, and I also had exceeded the amount of days to dose it with antibiotic's. So I believe the bacteria is cleared out. Today it is still a little fuzzy, but I think I need to clean my filter out and let it keep cycling. Thanks for your help!
