Question cloudy water

Im new this saltwater tank is my first. Im excited but i have a problem with cloudiness. How I began: I setup everything where it needed to be. Added water to my aquarium next added instant ocean (salt). Mixed it to the best of my ability then I started pouring the live sand in. It began getting cloudy and hasnt cleared and its been prolly 8-12 hrs. After the sand wsa added it came with packets so i added those and a guy that I bought from a pet store said to also use this quick cycle stuff. This is as far as i have gotten due to the off white cloudiness. I have a heater in there also and its on. I also have a 125 pro clear wet/dry filter which is currently off because I didnt know if it would keep it cloudy due to water current? So any information about the cloudiness would be great and helpful

Start running your filter,it will start pulling the particles out of the water.In the future never mix your salt in the water in your tank.Always mix in another container.
Once your filter starts running you should start seeing a difference.

And let is sit at least a few hours before adding.
