Cloudy water with no fish. (new tank)

I set up my Fluval Chi last night. The water was clear yesterday and earlier this morning but when I came home tonight the water was a little cloudy. There aren't any fish in it just he same water conditioner I've been using in my bettas other tank. Any ideas what it could be?

Any gravel?

I washed gravel I got at walmart a thousand times and it still clouded the water when left to sit.

Yea, Estes spectrastone from my lfs. I rinsed it for like 10 minutes. Maybe I should let the filter run a little longer before I add the fish to see if it'll clear it up.

Could be bacterial bloom from setting up the new tank. Not a bad thing... should clear up in a day or two.

Thats not really long enough, IMO...Id take it out and rinse for longer, then add back. I rinsed for an entire day, and did it really well, and its still cloudy.

Mine was cloudy for about three days. Then I changed out about 2 gallons of water and later that evening it was clear again.
