Cloudy water

For the last two days my relatively new tank has gone cloudy. I read one article that said not to do a water change then another that says to was all the fake plants and decorations clean the filter and change water. I have a Fluval 205 on a 29 gallon tank. Never had this problem when I had a 70 gallon tank. Please help. Thanks

Since its a new set up, more than likely its a bacterial bloom. Do you have another tank?

It appears to be clearing up a little. Should I wait and do a 10% water change on Monday?

Have your water tested and see if your NitrAtes are high, if they are then do a small water change.
