Cloudy water + UV Sterilizer

Hello All,

I set up a new tank about 2 months ago with the filters seeded with media from my other tank.
It's been cloudy ever since, so I decided to try out a UV sterilizer.

within 3 days the tank was crystal clear but after the 6th day the tank is cloudy again with teh uv sterilizer on,

any ideas?

it's well planted, 95 gallon tank
nitrates, ammonia are within the normal levels and co2 is around 25ppm,
there's no algae problem except for some spot algae on the glass which is cleared using a razor blade
Just did a 2x 50% water change and here are some of the pix of the aquarium

here's some pictures:
