I've never experienced cloudy water when cycling. Espeically if you're using cured LR - your water may remain clear forever.

Good - it's working. 8)

Can't ID without a pic, but 99% chance that they are good - & a sign of a maturing tank.

Tough to ID without a pic.

Any old brand will do for Ammonia & Nitrite -- after the tank has cycled, you should never expect to have Ammonia & Nitrite readings again. For everything else, Salifert.
