Why do most CRS breeding tanks have milky/cloudy waters?

After seen more than enough videos, pictures and in person, this makes me wonder. Like in this shrimp farm video: and many others I have seen in person.

The tanks with the most beautiful looking CRS combinations I have seen are in cloudy/milky like waters. That is so odd! I was told "clean" water parameters is key. Could it been the breeding solutions added to the water, certain chemicals to induce breeding, etc?

The tanks my bf and I have are in crystal clear waters (0 ammonia, 0 nitrate, 0 nitrite) thanks to bi-weekly water changes, lots of plants, and purigen. We are just afraid if our water is constantly this clear, our CRS won't breed :frown:
