Try putting in a new filter pad in the trickle tray of your wet/dry. Are these tiny bubbles or actual detritus? Cut back on feedings for now to see if that helps.

I believe Kent also makes a water clarifier. It is suppose t bind particulates togther and allow them to be removed more effectively by the mechanical filtration.

Choc-chip stars wont help clean the water and they are not reef safe.

Do you have a sump? I use several bio sponges, the kind that fit over an over-flow pipe. I just wedge a few into the path the water flows in the sump. That way, it forces the water fo flow through, under and around the sponges. Water is crystal clear and they are easy to clean.

Water clarifier works but your skimmer will go crazy for several days and it's just going to get back to where it was before.
