First, do you know what the source of the cloudiness is?

60 gallon
1 black ghost knife
4 black skirt tetras
2 zebra danios
1 algae eater
1 golden killifish
1 bamboo shrimp (MIA)
2 albino cory cats
3 tiger barbs

29 gallon (brackish)
1 Balloon and 10ish babies

Are these fish still in a twenty gal.? It could help to add another small filter or perhaps one larger filter. You might also consider your feeding schedule. Many cichlids are messy eaters and by reducing feeding and increasing the water changes to twice a week you may see an improvement. I would keep an eye out for forty gal breeder tank or fiftyfive gal tank to house these fish in. Water parameters And cloudinesss are much easier dealt with in larger body of water. Hope some of this helps. If this is not the twenty gal tank but a new larger tank,, then cloudiness is not uncommon and is frequently due to bacteria blooms which will subside as the tank matures without the use of chemicals. Decaying food on the bottom of the tank will also cause water to cloud and should be removed with gravel vaccum during water changes. Filters remove whats in the water but will not remove whats laying on the bottom. Hope some of this helps.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
