Cloudy water??

Am I just being to OCD or do we all have a cloudy milkish tank while looking from the side of the tank? All my parameters are good. It just seems when the lights first come on it looks kinda clear but as the night goes on it gets cloudy. Every night. Any experience on this matter???

Yea I just put a bag of carbon back in the sump. It's kinda weird, I was way low on calcium so I started dosing. While there was carbon in there. A few days ago I took the carbon out and my calcium cam back up to 440. Could it have been the calcium dosing making it cloudy? Or the carbon removing the calcium. I have to admit I had too much carbon in there.
