My opinion/experience:

Itís happened to me three times. 2 times when starting a new tank w/bacteria in a bottle (QT tanks) and once employing maintenance bacteria (Display tank).

It will clear on its own. Oxygen depletion is the chief danger, and since you have a sump/overflow I donít think your livestock will suffer.  You always worry when offering such opinions because you dont want to harm other peopleís tanks, but Iíve never lost anything during these events.
