Default Cloudy Tank - Help??

Not sure if this is the best place for this post.

I'm pretty sure this is not algae and I thought it was just the bacterial bloom you get in a new tank set up that would settle quickly.

Definite white cloudy water. Now approx 3-4 weeks since initial set up.

All water parameters are fine fish-in cycle although I never saw any spikes. All fish appear fine.

6.9-7.0 pH
24 deg' C
GH - 10
KH - 20
Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 0

1st pic of tank from the front daylight and colour tubes no flash.

2nd pic looking lengthwise through the tank showing just how cloudy it is.

Tank was dosed for 3 days with Nutrafin Cycle.

I have tried one treatment of Accu Clear. Don't want to chase this with loads of chemicals though.

Anyone any ideas?
