what i learned was everytime i used prime or something that was to elminate ammonia,nitratesm nitrites my tank would get cloudy. If you just do it the natural way your tank will never go cloudy.. Live Rock Live Sand..etc

Is the water sandy or cloudy. If it isnt sandy it could just be an algae bloom from higher ammonia. If ur tank is getting "cloudy" after water changes this just could be from just stirring up the sand.

Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com!!!
IF this is only occuring after you do water changes then it is most likey the substrate being disturbed. If it is constant, it could be another issue. Can you post water parameters?
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
