If it looks kinda milky white that means your tank is cycling. That's a good thing and it will clear up on it's own. When it does it's ready for your new betta!

Total time for a tank to cycle is about 4-6 weeks.

But once you see the murky-ness it means your getting close to done

the water should clear up within the next week or so

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

The highest for a betta that I would go would be 82 F and the lowest 76 F. So it's perfect temp.
