Cloudy water

I came home today and went to check my fish out and i seen a whole bunch of food at the bottom i knew right away my nephew poured half the bottle of food in my 14 gallon freshwater tank so i immediatley did a 20% water change and vacumed up the excess food off the gravel. The water is still kind of cloudy is there anything they sell at stores that will make the water clear again?

I'd do another, larger (50-75%) water change. The water will clear up.

In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS

Agreed. Also you might want to change out the carbon, rinse out the pad in used tank water. When it clears do the same again (if it's a FW tank). If it's not and you don't run carbon, run some then discard after it clears. Maybe even add a micro pad for awhile if it's a can filter.
