If your tank is still cycling i would pass on the wc and give it a few days. Also if it is cycling you should turn the skimmer off. If it is cycled I would say do the change and check skimmer adjustment. I have the same skimmer and It needs alot of adjusting.is there any fish in it yet?

Ok I would say water change then and check the skimmer adjustment. Are your water parameters ok?

It had cycled before but my fish had ich before and they started dying off so I did about 50% water changed to save my last few fish and it may have offset the chemistry

The water change probably didn't mess with anything but the ph and lower your nitrates so that should of caused any issues. Is the whole tank cloudy or just the surface water? Is the water coming out of the filter exhaust clear or clearer than your tank water?

Well everything seems in order. I would just check the skimmer and give it a few days the fish won't be hurt by the cloudy water
