cloudy water


I have a newly set up (1 week old) 95 gallon corner tank with a fluorite 
(well rinsed) substrate and a professional canister filter. The tank has been 
planted for the last five days with four different species of plants (sword 
tails only one I can remember off hand). I filled the tank with tap water 
which ran through a DI water filter. I added the appropriate micronutrients 
and pH adjuster chemicals that came with the water filter and have achieved a 
pH of 7.1. However, my water is a light milky-white color and has been so for 
the past five days, with no sign of clearing. (no fish yet, was waiting for 
it to clear). Any ideas? its terribly disappointing as this is my first tank.
