cloudy water

I put in two new powerheads yesterday and today i noticed my water is a little cloudy or hazy. It is not crystal clear like normal. I am thinking it is just from the new PHs but the sand is not being blown around. I just changed carbon last week. Amonia/nitrtie are 0, nitrate is 10, SG is 1.025, temp is 80, Alk is 4.5, CA is 400. There are no signs of distress in the tank, corals and fish all look healthy. What else could it be? Thanks! Lando

Could be microbubbles. If the outlet of the PH's are too close to the surface, they can pull in air.
