Bacterial bloom length?

So, I recently bought an aquaclear50 for my 26 gallon sorority tank. I seeded it with my old filters media, and it's been up and running for a little over a week now.
I've had the bacterial bloom going on for about 4 days now, how much longer will it last? It's driving me nuts! My water looks so cloudy i'm embarrased to let anyone see it.

Maybe between a week or a week and a half. That's how long mine last.

I think mine lasted for like 3 weeks in this tank the last time (probably because I was changing water every day to try to get rid of it)
Hopefully it only that long!!! I hate the look of it right now

I personally would just not touch the water, and it will usually calm down faster than if you did.

Yeah, it does look pretty ugly though. -_-

Just remember that every time you change water your taking out bacteria that has started the cycle and thinning out the available nitrates
