Slight fog?

Yesterday my tank was crystal clear. This morning it has a slight fog to it. I don't think I've been over feeding cuz my scissortaildartfish and zebra barred dartfish both eat a lot! Just tested my params and this is what I have

Ammo: about half way in between 0 and .25ppm
Nitrites: 0 ppm
Nitrates: 0 ppm
Ph: 8.0 (I'm gonna fix that after lunch)b
SG: 1.023


Also I have quite a lot of diatoms still left over from my cycle. Little algae growth. What could've caused the fog??

not saltwater but treated tap water just to top the tank off. I added the recommended amount of the API conditioner to it before I added it. It just decreased the SG from 1.024 to 1.023. It was just about 2 gallons. But it's not the first time I've done that. But it's the first time it's fogged a little afterwards.

no, I replaced it with purigen and something akin the lines on nitrinex or something like that! I can get the exact name for you later but I left town about 7-8 hours ago so I'm not currently home.
