I would appreciate it if you can type properly, rather than using texting language, is a little bit difficult to understand what you're saying.

Anyway, I'm trying to understand what you're saying. If you have removed the biological parts of your filter media than what you have done is removed all the bacteria which is there to remove ammonia and nitrite. Therefore you will get a bacteria bloom building up because there is no bacteria to remove it.

You need to test your water for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate. You will soon know if your biological filter has been upset because ammonia will be present. If you have removed the biological filter then you will have to cycle your tank from scratch

Not a full water change, but I would suggest you get the water tested to see what it is doing. I also suggest 50 percent water changes everyday for at least a month depending on what water conditioner you are using.

Prime is a great choice! I think it has the ability ro rid of ammonia and nitrite levels for two days (better check the bottle to be sure). If that's the case then do a 50 percent water change every other day instead.
