Cloudy water is a sign of the bacteria growing. This means your tank is still cycling. Just continue to do you water changes and water tests. Eventually you will see nitrItes and then nitrAtes. You will have to continue water changes as long as you see nitrItes and ammonia. It's going to eventually come together.

Hello sprmankle:
I do not understand why “Cloudy water is a sign of the bacteria growing. This means your tank is still cycling”. I understand that cloudy water is a sign of bacteria growth but are these bacteria bloomers the same as cycling bacteria?

Well I don't know what the levels are right now but my tank is clear. We added an air stone. Did wonders!
