Overfeeding maybe? Filter cartridges need changing?

What size of tank do you have? Is it planted? What's the stocking in it, and how long has it been running?

It would also be helpful if you could give ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels.

could be an algae bloom. Turn lights down or off. Water change, suck out all dead or decaying plants, and leaves that look passed their best cut and remove from tank.
Come back if it has still not cleared.

Is it a murky white cloudy colour or a green pea soup colour?
