If you are using the filter cartridge, make sure it is seated properly.  I had a gap that allowed water to pass and not run through the cartridge.  If you have jsut using filter floss, make sure that is all covered.  

 

How old is the tank meaning when did you add water, rock and sand?

It will clear up, just let the filter work.

It's a new tank with new sand. It can take hrs to a couple of days to clear up.

You are going to spend time cycling your time anyway. Don't worry. For nano tanks, don't use sand that is too fine.
