Do you change the filter also when you doing a water change?

My tank has live plants so I use 3 sponge filters I rince them before I do the water change.o use dry chemicals and co2. Maby I should just try mew filters as cheep as they are I'll just have to buy some I thought it might be from a chemical al in balance? Not shure I'm new at all this planted fish tank.

Would it be from stirring up the substrate or when you do a water change do you put in a water conditioner? Maybe that clouds the water. I'm just guessing but you never know.

Figured out the cloudy tank was from feeding the fish twice a day only need to feed once a day of made the nitrate levils too high and not having a good backteria levle in the tank

All mine get cloudy (very lite white) after water changes, but i know it's from adding Seachem's Prime to my tap water!!

I found there isn't enough microorganisms in the tank I have changed it less and backed off my dry chemicals its been a lot better
