This seems to be a bacterial bloom (which is basically harmless) but the answers to the questions asked in previous posts will help us sort out the probable reason.

There is one other option, and that is cloudy tap water; run a large jar of water from the tap and see if it is cloudy. I remember having very cloudy tanks for several days after each water change one year when very heavy rains washed minute sediment into the water reservoir lakes.

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]
