Default why is my fish tank icky?

The boys each won a really cheap goldfish at the fair in July, so we got a 10 gallon fish tank. It's been just fine EXCEPT it's impossible for me to keep clean. I watch the amount of food (I actually end up feeding them half the time, you know) so I know it's not over-feeding... we have a good filter - I thought it was supposed to last a month or so, but it's dirty within a week or two and I end up changing it anyway.

The water gets cloudy in an orange-y kind of way. It looks like dirt vs. just cloudy. We have a well and I use the two things to condition it for the fish that were recommended at the pet store - the slime coat stuff and another thing to clean the water. Obviously something isn't working!

Any guesses or suggestions to keep the tank cleaner? I did nearly a 100% clean 15 days ago and wouldn't expect it to look this gross already.
