Exclamation new aquarium

Im new here and new to this so if this is the wrong section feel free to move it mods.

My new 10 gallon fish tank went from crystal clear like this http://puu.sh/R3Va to all cloudy and murky with a greenish tint like this http://puu.sh/R3RQ is something wrong?

It's probably just a bacterial bloom. Has your tank cycled yet? You say it's new..

Not sure if there's an article on this forum, I'm on my phone so it's somewhat of a pain to look, but I did find this.

f it is indeed a bacterial bloom, and it looks like it to my untrained eye, then you don't really need to worry.. just wait it out. It's common in new tanks, as are diatoms. Both occurred in my tank. :)

If it's pretty green then it may be an algae problem.. what sort of aquarium light do you use? When do you keep the lights on?

Is there any sunlight hitting your tank?
