i have a tank i'm setting up for some cichlids i guess a 30 gallon not sure of exact measurements and when i filled it up it got cloudy and stayed that way for the 1st 2 days. all i had in it was water and the filter/pump i got 1 hang on back filter a whisper takes a medium sized cartridge and an undergravel pump that moves approximately 150 gallons of water an hour. i put 30 pounds of caribsea aragonite in it last night and added some guppies to start the cycle about 20 ish most under an inch long. my question is is there anything i can do about the cloudy water or just dont worry about it. water from the tank last night tested at fish store where i got the guppies and aragonite 7.2 ph 0 ammo 0 nitrates 0 nitrites and he said my KH was a little low but that should come up with the aragonite. i rinsed it out about 2 pounds at a time the water was cloudy coming out of my hose the 1st 15 gallons was crystal clear then it started to get cloudy. its well water so not much in it it tests all 0 for ammo nitrate and nitrite any info would be greatly appreciated

Don't worry, it's fine. By the time your tanks has cycled the water will be crystal clear. Tap water is often cloudy at first, usually due to micro-bubbles.
