Cloudy tank help!!

All parameters are fine, is was a little cloudy so I did a water change and its looks even worse now! It like a white cloudy now. I'm thinking Mayr it just got stirred up, if so how long will it take to get clear? It's a 55 gal. African cichlid tank.

leave it to settle for an hour - if its still bad get a bowl of the current tank water and rinse the filter pads/media, then while the filter is out of the tank disturb all the substrate to make a huge cloudy mess and siphon 70-80%. reccomended! x

whats in there? curious
