I've noticed at the outset of a green water bloom that the water initially
appears cloudy white rather than green.  The color doesn't turn green
until the cloud gets thicker.

Is it possible that your cloudy water is the start of an algae bloom,
poised to turn into green water when conditions are right?  You could keep
the lights off for a couple days to see if it goes away.
