Getting a little cloudy?

Yesterday we noticed the the water has a "slight" cloudy look to it. Last water change was 15% this last Friday. Tests done friday evening were all inline. I'm going to test again tonight.

Is cloudy water in an established FO tank a sign of bad things to come?

If this were a new cycling tank, I would say this is normal. But cloudy water in an established tank should not happen.

What are your water parameters, especially ammonia and nitrite? Also what, how often, and how much do you feed? Overfeeding is typically tied right in with cloudy water.

Have you done any major internal moving of any rock, sand, etc??

Thats my wifes department... I shall have a WORD with her and make sure she's no overdoing it. She is feeding once a day currently and nori is left in 24/7 for the tang but replaced daily.

Ammonia 0, Nitrites 0, Nitrates 20, PH 8.2, SG 1.022, temp 80-83 (the days are getting a bit warmer hence the temp swing)

No major changes in the tank what so ever.
