You're probably correct. The haziness should go away very shortly.

How long did you cycle it? How did you cycle it? What were the results of your test? What kind of test kit?

Consider the needs of your fish before acting on your desires.

A caution on your combination of fish: the blue gourami should be OK if they are a pair (male/female) or two females [read more in the profile, click shaded name]. But the tetra might be trouble. This species is known to fin nip, and the flowing fins of any gourami, plus its slow sedate nature, will be tempting to the tetra. Read more in the profile, click the shaded name Black Widow Tetra [same fish, common names vary].

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
