Can't get tank to clear up - Cloduy
I have been fighting a cloudy tank for about a month or longer. Tried doing 50% water changes a few times, changed/cleaned filter, etc. I don't know what else to try to do. I have ~ 50 Neon tetras, and 3 small clown loaches to fight snail problem, plus about 10 nerite snails, and a lot of pest snails. There are also about 5 amano shrimp.
I did a PH, Nitrate, and Phosphate tests:
PH: High, about 7.6
Phosphates: ~ 0.5
Nitrates: between 5-10
So the only thing that seems off there is the PH level. Could this be my problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
