I agree with the above. I might also say 50% water changes weekly seems a little overkill, might be stressing your system and plants and fish. Maybe try a couple days in the dark, try the UV. Then do a 50% change. From there weekly touch ups/20% should more than suffice. I do less on my overstocked 20 gallon and no problems
I guess ill try again leaving it in the dark, and I really hope I don't have to get a UV sterilizer, since its hard to find one in my country that isn't for a canister filter or just stupidly expensive. I don't know, mabe once its fixed ill dial down the water change.

I just wanted to post an update to this, it seems like the reason my water was so cloudy was the food!
After thinking about it I stopped giving the Tetra Pro Colour Crisps (picture below) and my water is now crystal clear.
I wanted to put this here just as some info if anyone has the same problem.

Well that can't be right... According to Tetra Pro...

Clean, Clear Water
Tetra formulas feature micro milled, exotic, high-protein fish meal as a core ingredient—making them pure and digestible with fewer colorants. This leads to less waste and a cleaner, clearer aquarium.

Uhhh isn't this the other way around?
OP quit giving it.

In this case it does seem to be the other way around. Maybe OP got a bad batch of flakes

I don't know about that, just that its been 15 days without using it and the water is really clean, maybe as nikm128 said, I got a bad batch?

I can try and put some in some water in a clear glass and post a picture and show you how it does get really cloudy

Maybe I m not sure I do have another one unopened but I'm scared of using it and making it cloudy once more
