In reading the information from the company it specifically
says that it will not cloud the water. However, in looking
on the internet I did find one instance were someone claimed
it did, and that it cleared up after 4 hours or so.
White cloudy water is generally assumed to be the result of
a bacterial bloom and can be easily treated with water
changes and vacuuming the substrate.

Set aside a water sample of the original water and test it after you've done the water change. Goldfish are generally pretty hardy fish but they need a lot of space. Reducing the stress levels by matching water temperature and making sure the right amount of dechlor is added may help them pull through. Do only 25% this time as too large of a water change can sometimes stress fish as well.
Can you describe the 'murky' water a little more. Unfortunately in our hobby there are lots of different types of 'murky' each means something different. Is it white, green, brown? can you see individual particles (look close) or is it just generally foggy looking?
Let us know the results of your water test.
Welcome to the site hope we can help your fish
