Default Cloudy Tank

Hi,

The past few days my tank has been a little brownish and cloudy. The parameters are all fine 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, ~10 nitrates, pH ~6.4-6.6. They don't look stressed (gills look fine, tail not curved). I have a piece of aquarium wood and some slate in for hides, but I've had my tank running for a while (~1-1.5 months) and it's just now getting this coloring, and I just wanted to make sure everything is okay!

Thanks!
