That could be part of the problem.
Never change more than 25% of the water at once and with 3 weeks worth of set up, you should try changing the water more frequently with less amounts.
What tests have you done? They don't necessarily detect why your tank is cloudy, could be dust from the new gravel in the tank that didn't get a chance to settle or the water in general.
Buy some books about fish and one of the main rules is to be patient. You'll figure out the problem soon enough, and be a happy fish keeper.
