Freshwater community 56 gal. Cycled tank. Parameters ph 7, ammonia 0, nitrites 0, nitrates stay between 5 to 20, depending on water change which I have been doing weekly 20%. 5 pandas, 1 small angel, 11 harlequin rasboras, 2 dwarf orange crawfish, 7 blue velvet shrimp (only ever see 3 to 5 at once). 2 amano shrimp (one huge) and added 3 more smallish ones last night for a hair algae problem that the big one has been clearing. Also added poly-fil tI polish in the biofilter.
My tank was crystal clear but is now very cloudy despite water changes and cleaning glass and inside sponges placed in penquin and sponge on intakes. I suspect I am overfeeding cause I was afraid they were starving. If so and I cut back by half would that clear the water?

Oh yes it is moderately planted and use a Finnex 24/7 light.
