Water's cloudy

In one of our tanks the water is cloudy already. Should we do a water change now since we're bringing the boys home tomorrow?

When did you add the water? Sometimes my water is cloudy right out of the tap if the temperature is lukewarm, but the cloudiness goes away once the water settles a bit. Are you cycling/are there current inhabitants/were there inhabitants of this tank in the past? Did you rinse your substrate and decor really really really well? Sometimes dust from gravel can cause cloudiness.

I added the water on Thursday, we rinsed everything before adding it and I rinsed off the decor as best as I could getting rid of dust on it.

There were no current inhabitants of the tanks these are brand new.

Should I just wait and see if the water settles and if I have to see about getting it changed if it doesn't settle? It's only happened in one tank so far.

Bacterial bloom. It's not harmful to anything and will go away in the next 1-2 days.

Oh okay! Thanks guys! My mom also just checked the ammonia and it's fine so I guess it'll settle down after we add the boys.
