Normal Clouding?

I just upgraded my 20 Gal. high to all planted, and switched to Eco-Complete (Black Sand) Substrate. I rinsed rather well, but some clouding is still observable, none of the fish seem to mind. Will the filter just clean it up over time? (Pics soon.

How long has it been cloudy? That should clear yet.
Looking forward to seeing your pics. :)

I just set up the tank yesterday, haven't ran the filter, but overall the tank has cleared up considerably.

Most likley explanation is a bacterial bloom that caused the cloudyness and should subside over a few days.
