Water got murky within hours, will this hurt my fish?

So today I purchased a moss ball and root tabs for Tiberius's tank. I put them in his tank today before leaving for my class. When I got back from class his water was (and still is) much murkier, and the filter is putting out a lot more bubbles than it normally does. Is this okay? Should I do a water change? Ti doesn't seem affected yet but I really do not want him getting sick...

May of been the root tabs.. sometimes they can cause an ammonia spike- I would test your water and if so, do an immediate water change. But from what I gather, the tabs do things such as cloud up water once in a while depending on what brand you get.

I'd say to still do a water change anyways now as it is- if you are concerned, you could ask Pewpewpew or OFL in a PM.
