Default clean water!

hi all,
is it just me or am i doing something wrong?
when you do a water change and clean the gravel
why is it im always dissapointed???
the water looks murky with bits floating everywhere???
i think my fish must think god ckean us you idoit not make it worse!!!
yes the next day its fine looks lovely,
but i`d hate it if i just done a water change and someone
came round they would think i dont care???
and my hubby says im obsessed with them thinks its
something to do with my ocd prob????
everything clean tidy and in its place,
am i stressing or am i doing something wrong????

I know how you feel. I have been having cloudy water and have been doing water changes and syphoning and I added charcol to my eclispe filter. I have also added Aqua Safe two days in a row and the water is still murky. At least my fish seem happy.

When cleaning the tank you will stir up trash and stuff. You filter will catch most of it. If it looks good the next day, I would say you did a good job. Don't worry how it looks the day of cleaning.
