Question Foggy Water

I phoned up my mother the on Sunday to feed my fish. Because I wasn't home. She gave them 2 pinches of food. The following day, the water was foggy & looked yellow. I waited til Thursday to change the water. I took out 1/4 of the water, cleaned the gravel, etc. And today is Friday and the tank still is foggy & yellow? Does anyone know why? I've had these fish & tank for over 6 months. And no problems til now.

My tank is 10 gallons
I have 6 Serape tetras
5 black skirted tetras
A bubbler
1 filter that sits on the side of the tank.

Should I do another water change? Or wait it out til Thursday? Also I did the ammonia test everything is good.

Maybe put fresh carbon in your filter to see if that helps. Water change wouldn't hurt either.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

I've had my tank set up for about 10 months.
No wood.
I did 2 water changes since I posted, and the water still has not come out clear.
On todays water change I put in a new filter.
If this does not help.
Can someone please tell me exactly how much of a water change I should do.
1/2 the tank? 1/4 of the tank? etc.?

thanks!

Make sure to put in a new filter and that should clear things up. I was recently having a problem with a cloudy 10 gallon, so I put in a new filter as well. It fixed the problem and I didn't have to do any more water changes!

My Tanks:
(1) 125 Gallon Saltwater FOWLR
(1) 55 Gallon Community
(2) 29 Gallons -Livebearers - Saltwater (Live rock)
(2) 10 Gallons -Dwarf Puffers
(1) 2 Gallon- Baby tank
(3) 1 Gallons- Baby Livebearers
