After after a regular 50% pwc i added two plants, some underwater fertilizer tabs, and three BN Plecos. Very soon after I got cloudy water. I changed 40% of the water but it made no difference.

55 Gal, (2) AquaClear 70 HOB filters
No ammonia, nitrites, nitrates at 10-20 (same as from tap) API Master Kit

I should point out that for 24 hours one of the filters wasn't working but that the filter media was kept in the tank till it was replaced. It was replaced when the BN Plecos were added along with the plants.

IMO it sounds like a bacteria bloom from the change in filters, it happens just keep an eye on your levels and your tank should clear up within a few days
