If you water gets foggy with a greenish tint put algea tablets in.

If its just plain foggy do small water changes that only add water and wait a couple days and it should be clear. If that doesn't work do it over.

By letting the tank cycle and then performing weekly water changes of about 50% of the tank's volume.

During the cycling process, the beneficial bacteria are looking for a place to stay, in the filter and in the gravel, so you need to be patient and change about 40% of the water every third-fourth day or so if you're keeping fish in it already Smiley
