Foggy water

My tank started to cycle...I've a raw jumbo shirmp for 3 days and my readings are ph 7.8 amonia 0.5 1.0 +/- nitrite 0 nitrate 0...just beginning....
But it's look like my water's getting foggy. No light on because I'm worry about green alge.
Is that kind of foggy water normal?
Thanks

It is probably due to the decomposition of the shrimp. Keep monitoring your water parameters.

Sorry...I mean I'll keep monitoring my water.
Lights off will be ok? I notice green hair alge growing on the aragonite...It doesn't look good that thing... and with lights off it's look like to help stop growing.

Lights off will be fine. I wouldn't waste your pH test during the cycle, it will be all over the place.
