There's enough of it covering the bottom of the tank that I suspect it's the main cause of the cloudiness, but I can't figure out what it could be that it would take over the tank that quickly.
WOW! I'm surprised as well and everything doesn't fit together.
The drug does scavenge Oxygen.
How about aeration and tank temperature? Do you keep the water surface moving?
