How long has the tank been setup? What does it smell like?

Need to know ammonia and nitrite measurements.

I checked an old thread that was posted about this tank about a month or so ago you mentioned there was some brown leaves (plant is Monte Carlo) and the topic of a regular fertilizer routine was brought up (none). It was suggested that the nutrients in the substrate were becoming exhausted.
Did you start a fertilizer routine since that time? A test kit (and results of such testing) for nitrate and phosphate would be helpful for the plants (as well as ammonia and nitrite for the fish).
How much CO2 is being added to that tank?
In the mean time, you could decrease the lighting period. Less light, less demand for CO2 and fertilizers.

I think the cause might also be my filter that stopped like maybe for a week? But the water went cloudy in a day since I always look at my tank and never suspected that the filter wasn't running. Only the time when i saw the fishes were like floating....
