What's my best option?

I have a 5 gallon tank with two shrimp and a snail, live plants for oxygen. The shrimp and snail eat the algae and I don't have to feed them. The tank has a natural cycle for the nitrates etc. The creatures are happy but my water is murky due to algae. How can I filter the algae out of the water itself yet leave the nitrate cycle alone and still have alae for the shrimp to eat? I just want to improve water clarity. TIA

Been doing water changes but cant seem to keep up. Which filter would you recommend for my size tank and whatnot? Where would you buy it?
