Depends. If possible test your taps ph it would help.

Not much else I can think of that can cause cloudy water. I figure you do weekly water changes and siphon out your gravel.

Hmm like I said is it possible to test your taps ph? Could be an excess of silicates or phosphate that can usually cause cloudy water but we can't confirm that unless we know the your tanks ph is different than your tap.

Aha! Ok now the question is what's causing it. Do you happen to have limestone in the tank? Do you notice a decoration fading? What did you use as gravel?

Ok I don't want to say it's the gravel and have you change it only to find out that wasn't the culprit.

I'm stumped :S
