My guess would be a bacterial bloom. When I change more than %25 of
the water at a time I get some cloudiness in the water. It usually goes
away after a day or two. I also noticed the same effect when I changed %20
of my water and removed most of my stem plants in favor of some crypts.
It may also be a slight green water outbreak (but I doubt it). Your
well water could have enough nutrients to trigger a bloom, albeit a very
slight one. The low concentration of the algae spores make the water seem
cloudy instead of green. I have noticed this phenomenon.
