Cloudy water

my 30gal tank is cloudy... I do a 25% wc every week, have 2 cascading filters (10 gal and 30 gal) been set up for 4 to 5 months now. 4 small angels (will be returning 2 to lfs when they get a bit bigger) 9 neon tetras, 5 assorted platys, 1 oto, 1 common pleco and 1 albino cory. I dont have a way to test the water other than taking some to the lfs which i will do. I see no white stuff on anything in the tank just the cloudy water for several days now. Any ideas?

youre going through what's called a bacterial bloom. It can happen when you stir up substrate. Don't worry about the cloudy water it'll go away soon. I would be worried about that pleco and Cory. The common pleco would grow way to big for that tank, and Corys need to be in a group of atleast 6. Swap the common pleco for a Bristlenose pleco those max at 5-6"
