Help please...

hello all.

in need of some help if possible please.
i have a 20 gallon tank, which is now planted
with 12 different plants

since adding the plants, doing a water change and adding the liquid seachem ferts my water has gone kinda murky...why?

i added 2 caps of excel, 1 of flourish and 1 of trace.
...the bottles themselves say this is ok.
ive now done 2 W/C...one yesterday and one tonight
yesterdays was 40% todays was about 10% just to try and clear the water...but everything ive tried hasnt worked?

why has it gone so cloudy?
its that cloudy i almost cant see the background plants...

isit the new addition of the liquid ferts in the water thats made it go cloudy?
its just that when i added the ferts earlier tonight you can actually see the liquid ferts disperse threw the water for a few seconds...
all help will be very much appreciated
