Do you have a nitrate level or is it zero?

Nitrates shouldnt be zero. We try to keep nitrates low with water changes but zero is pretty difficult to do with an established tank. I could be a bacteria bloom or it could be stuff leeaching out of your drift wood. Is this a fairly new tank or new piece of drift wood?

If it just a bacteria bloom look for uneaten food and clean your mechanical filtration if you havent done it in a while (Ie. a couple of weeks) It should clear up in about three days to a week.

If its something else who knows??

was you tank cycle?...what you running for filteration?

Do 30% of waterchange twice a week for now until you dont see the cloudyness...the more filter the better...piranha is a messy eater as well, must do gravel vaccum when you do water change.

Do you use amonia removers? If so you may be using too much and are killing off all the amonia in the tank and as a result forced your tank back into a cycle. If so water changes will not help.

i know thats why i got it its cool aint it
You don't seem to be that pissed that this is happening. You should try and answer some of the questions the others have asked you. Maybe then you will get your answer as to why your tank is cloudy.
