Cycling means setting up necessary bacterial colonies that convert ammonia into nitrites, then into nitrates. As EriksFish315 asked, how are you cycling your tank, are there fish in there now? If so, I suggest you read up on this article. I just learned about cycling but I already have fish. What now?!
Whitish colored cloudiness usually indicates a bacterial bloom which is generally a good thing. Again, if your cycling with fish which I'm assuming your are, follow the instructions on the article.
And forget about adding anymore chemicals to water .... IMO
waste of $$$$. If it's a bacterial bloom, it'll eventually clear away on it's own with time, patience and PWC
's. The only chemical you add to water is a water conditioner / dechlorinator like Seachem Prime for example.
