Every time a do a water change,clean the algae of the glass,clean the sponges on the filters ,my tank gets cloudy ,,I wonder if its the tap water I put back in because this never use to happen often like that.

Especially with sand this will happen.. It happens to me all the time especially because i disturb the sand to move it around a little bit and it shakes up a lot of the dust but by next morning mine is crystal clear.. I'm surprised yours is taking a few days.

What kind of sand do you have? PFS doesn't do this for me, but play sand does. Not as bad as you mentioned though.

Are you using a water conditioner such as prime to get rid of chlorine? Do you clean your filters with tap water?
