HELP FAST

I woke up this morning and noticed that threw the night my tank got kinda cloudy. so i tested water, and everything was good at zero and my ph was at 7.0. So i did a water change anyway (6 gallon on a 20 gallon tank). Then i came home tonight and my tank is 20x's worse. The water tests fine. I turned the lights on to make sure my fish were still alive. And they seemed fine. The only thing is my water is CLOUDY! i can barely see my heater on the other side. HELP PLEASE!
thanks
seacat

Info... info... info... more info needed

Is it a new tank? Did you add anything in new lately? Did you move your powerheads around at all? Anything new? Anything else will help. Water tests fine? What levels are they?

What exactly did you test for?

Also does it look like particles floating like new sand had been added or just cloudy?

Sounds dumb, but my Tomato will kick up sand everywhere with her tail everytime she feels her home is threatened. She causes my water to look bad in a 75g.

Send a message via Yahoo to quarryshark
PH is 7.0??? That is very low. I would slowly buffer the water to raise it to at least 8.0.
Would also do a large water change and maybe run some carbon to see if that may clear it up.
If your PH is that low, please move quickly.
