Nitrates are at 15ppm. Tank was all fine until after a clean when murkiness crept in soon after

25ppm*

Since you rinsed your filter with tap water you probably lost some bb, you might be having a bacterial bloom. Or an algae bloom, 13 hours is quite a long time to have your tank lights on, most people aim for around 8 hours. Try leaving the lights off for a day and see if it improves any.

Just swish it around and give it a few squeezes in old tank water or dechlorinated water, the chlorine in tap water kills good bacteria :/
