What does your water test results say. Sometimes ammonia will give off a haze.

I would guess thats your problem then, in a small tank it could make your water look milky, maybe take him out or just live with it, or you could try feeding him less. good luck

The carbon can actually make it cloudy for a day or so too

In a bag most of the water is probably flowing around it rather than through it. Hopefully it will clear up soon for you.
