my 10 gallon tank just went through this sort of thing, twice. if it has been up and running a few weeks and you haven't "hoovered" the gravel, you may have stirred up some anaerobic pockets of bacteria. (i am assuming its white cloudy, not green cloudy). also, have you tested your water, and how many fish are in the tank? a 10 gallon can be tough to get going, small accidents really mess with it quickly, cause there isn't that much water.
gravel vac once a week with your water change (10-30% change), and yes dechlorinate it BEFORE adding it to the tank. i would try algone if it hasn't cleared up in a few days- it works on all types of cloudy issues, not just algae.
