For what it's worth, most of the things in the water that are dangerous to our fish are not even visible to us.

I think you should try to up your water changes until you get upgraded. You will probably still see the cloudy water at least for a little while in the bigger tank. Its pretty normal.

On a small volume of water like that you should do more water changes per week.

Just going to toss this into the mix, not all gravel is naturally colored as in it is tinted/dyed/ or epoxy coated and can cause a hazy effect as it starts to break down and expose the gravels true mineral content.

I would wait. Get a 5 gallon and then you can use a filter and not have to change it twice a week. A 3.5g is fine, nice and roomy but if you want to save yourself twice weekly changes by using a filter and maybe even hope for a stable cycle, then go for a 5g.

You can cycle a 3.5g as easily as a 5g.
