Thumbs down WHY? Does my tank get cloudy a day or 2 after cleaning?

I am getting so annoying, I do 100% water changes every week and after 1 or 2 days it is cloudy again. Why? Halp.

What size tank, filter, live plants, additives used, type of substrate and how deep. Filter media care-if you have a filter and stocking.

What is the source water.

My tank is 1 gallon... I think? No filter, no live plants and no supplements. Only water conditioner

How long has it been setup-is it a new tank, what kind and how deep is the substrate. What is the source water-How often are you making water changes and is the Betta the only livestock.
What kind of fish food are you feeding and do any left over food left in the tank between water changes.
Can you post a pic.

I have only had my betta for like 2 weeks now. Its cube shaped. Its 6" in height.
Nutrafin Max Betta Food (3 g) is the food. There is never any left because he eats all that I give him.
My fish is the only occupant.
Its a Marina tank. 2L.
One thing that I think may cause it is the gravel, its very small and very hard to rinse. I am buying larger gravel tomorrow.

sounds like the gravel. You can try putting it in one of those fine metal strainers to wash. Personally, I'd just toss it out and get larger gravel(rinse it really well before you put it in the tank).

BTW: there are about 3.8 liters in a gallon. :)

Yeah, its so small I can't even strain it so... I guess I am not properly cleaning the gravel. It has been p&^%#^ me off since I first got it. I am Canadian I don't understand gallons haha. Sorry. :P
