Well if the cloudiness isnt being caused by floating debris (dead plant matter and such) my guess is its a bacteria bloom possible caused by the removal of so much dead and living matter. Basically you had a large bioload that is suddenly depleted making the bacteria die off cause you have too much bacteria and not enough load for it. With all you have done I would just let it settle and balance out. If you arent planning on adding to the bioload it should clear up rather quickly maybe a week or so. I wouldnt keep doing water changes as you are clearing the bacteria causing the bloom which in turn produces more to compensate.

Let it settle and possibly add an airstone to put more oxygen in the water.
