Water "Milky" Looking

Hello:

I recently started a 29Gal and noticed my water is kind of milky(Cloudy).
I changed the water and it cleared up for a day or so then the "milky" look came back.
I noticed my clear airline tubing had been changed to white opaque.
Has anyone else had similar issues?
The water chemistry is fine and the fish do not seem to mind.
I believe I have a stone or an ornament that is leaking this white chalky substance into the water.
Any Ideas?

It could be a bacterial bloom... They are common in the early stages of an aquarium. Have you tested ammonia? If ammonia and nitrites are 0 and nitrates are present then it's probably not bacteria, try to check your decorations...

Sorry can't help much more.
