Sounds like your betta is flaring at you! This is normal behavior for male bettas (and some females). They do this as a threat display if they see another male betta or if they see their reflection in the glass, to show off, or sometimes for no reason at all.
What size tank do you have? Most tanks will be cloudy for the first few days as it is 'cycling' or building up the helpful bacteria that break down fish waste. If Guido is eating all of his food then the tank is probably not cloudy due to overfeeding....I thought that's why my tank was cloudy at first too but it was just cycling.
If you have a heaterr and filter and your water parameters are normal, just keep doing the appropriate water changes and your tank will clear up soon!
