Cloudy water after WC?

I just did my weekly 20gal WC on my "55"gal(holds more like 45, in reality) and for some reason, after this one, the water clouded up. Not too bad...I can see straight through to the back of the tank, and from side to side, but it boggles me.

I did it the same way I always do, one 5gal bucket at a time, using my hand to disperse the water as I pour it in. Any ideas? Could my tap water have changed? Oh well, I'll see how it clears up in the next couple of hours.

could be minerals? O2, wait to see if it clears up due to outgassing.

Its clearing up quite rapidly now. Quite odd, really. Hasn't ever done that, and I didn't get any pearling afterwards, so it didn't seem like outgassing.

Oh well, no harm, no foul I suppose.
