I'm after some advice.  I set up my new tank 2 days ago. Initially the water was Crystal clear but it has now gone very cloudy. I have a new canister filter with carbon, bio balls and ceramic noodles. I thoroughly washed all the media before starting the filter. I now have a sponge filter and a bio filter running as well but it doesn't seem to be clearing the water up. Any suggestions on what I can do please?

Patience.  It often clears up by itself, but takes time.

If it is still cloudy in a few more days, you can do a 100% water change.  After that it should be clear.  Note that you must add the dechlorinator WITH the new water, or preferably treat the new water FIRST and then add it to the tank.  Otherwise you'll kill off the beneficial bacteria that are starting to grow.
