Cloudy water

I just recently changed the tank filter, did a 50% water change and gravel vacuumed, as well as rinsed and scrubbed some of the tank accessories. I did it hoping to help remove some of the cloudiness in the water. When it didn't help, I bought a water clearing solution to help, and it worked for a day. So I tried a more well known brand: imagitarium water clear, and that also worked for a day. The water is still getting slightly cloudy and it used to be so clear. I am following all of the guidelines for the different water solutions, including all of the original ones when setting up the water/doing water changes. The research I've done says if all else fails, it may just resolve itself. So for the next few days I'm letting it be and slightly reducing the amount in feedings. If this doesn't work though, does anyone have other suggestions?

Well changing your filter, all that cleaning, scrubbing looks like you upset your bacteria colony. Way too much at once.

Here is some information to help with cloudy water...
