Ummm... going to need a little more info. Have you done anything different in the last week with your tank? Added any new fish? Added any medication? Last time since you changed the water? You get the idea...

My standby advice in a situation like this: a 20% water change never hurts.

[Edit: Is this the same tank we were talking about here: Bad levels

If so, then it could just be a bacterial bloom from the tank cycling. How are your ammonia/nitrite levels?]

Water parameters? NH3 can cause cloudy water (and a foul smell). If the tank is cycling then let it ride. It is normal. If the tank has already cycled then look to water parameters. Do a water change and try using some GAC and filter pads to help clear things up.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
