Water clear in morning/cloudy at night

My water is clear in the morning and gets a cloudiness to it in the evening. Any ideas why?

Assuming you talk about your planted tank

Could be an onset of green water, or simply a bacterial bloom. As to why morning clear and evening cloudy, water parameters change during the day, driven by light, CO2 injection (if any), photosynthesis... Perhaps leading to more favorable conditions for the organisms causing the fog.

Without knowing any details, it is hard to give any recommendations what to do about it. Perhaps wait it out and hope it will go away by itself?
