Food? I didnt know I was suppose to put food in the tank. Should I be?
fishless cycles are typically done by depositing food to generate ammonia when the food starts to biodegrate.

Did you wash the gravel thoroughly before adding it to the tank Shawn-? If not, that could also account for the cloudiness in the tank.
