Do daily water changes.

DO NOT use chemicals that say they will clear up your aquarium, when water changes do the job.

from what i have learned in my short time in tanks, i had a amonia spike so i added ammo lock, it clouded my tank like a champ took 2 weeks to fully clear up. it is the addative (chemicals) that made it cloudy. after that i did pwc daily and that cleared it right up and my ammonia levels came back down to 0. so i would suggest to just to daily pwc's and it should then be fine.
