its had fish for a month so cycling is normal, but clouding happens routinely in tanks with bac blooms and other insults. there are a few extra factors to eliminate when hunting for causes. these are at least avenues to look at.

I think it may be a tocsin in the water from when we were cleaning this all happened within 20 minutes and it started an hour ago I didn’t stick my hand in the tank until an hour after we were done cleaning so I hope I didn’t poison in the water with something
Cleaning? Cleaning the tank or cleaning something around the house?

Around the house but we both know not to spray anything near the tank
Maybe you had some cleaning product on your hands still when you put your hand in the tank. Add some carbon, and do a water change asap. Do you have any snails or other inverts in your tank? If so, how are they doing? Are the copepods on your glass still moving?

I meant cap lol I didn’t catch that
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! Hopefully the water change does the trick. For fish to respond like that so quickly seems to suggest oxygen issues or some toxin was introduced (like something on our hands poisoned the tank). Either way a water change is needed.

If your corals and inverts aren’t affected then it doesn’t sound like a toxin. Increase surface agitation to add extra oxygen and do a water change asap as recommended. I hope your clowns recover! Good luck!!
