Default Ada how to prevent clouding due to fish

I setup my 50g with some ADA that was used from tom. Got an excellent deal on it.

So the soil was quite clumpy and all and when I put it in my tank I had to use a gravel cleaner to get the chunky stiff stuff out and the clouding on top of the soil out.

The tank will be all nice and clear, but then my loach loves to eat snails on the soil and he will toss around in the soil to eat the snail. At the same time clouds of ada dust comes up thanks to him, and within 2 days my tank is cloudy and it doesnt go away.

I use 4 ultrafine filter pads and some carbon and still it doesnt get rid of it.

Can I just cap the ADA with some flourite gravel? What should I do?
