I was just wondering how I could get my water clearer

Hello, I was just wondering how I could get my water clearer. I have a 20 gallon high and have an AC 300 running on it as well as a top fin 10 I just started tonight with activates carbon. Not really sure how to fix my issue, it's not really a big deal I just wanna make my tank look beautiful, if you have any tips tell me too! Thanks!

I'm not quite sure why it's cloudy, but it's kind of just foggy. Like blurry

Check the inside surface for a film. It may be as simple as cleaning the inside of the glass.
