When dooing a water change you should airate it for 12-24 hours preferably 24 hours . You should never top off with salt water as it is only the water that evaps out , this will cause your spg to rise to dangerous levels or even leathal levels .
As to the cloudiness how long was it that it was cloudy ? What was in your tank LR
or sand if so it is a very real possibility that if you ran 2 filters with floss that it would have cleared up and was probably just particals that had not settled down ..
it can also be a bacterial bloom which can and does occur in new tanks or even it tanks with uncured LR
