I think I understand the problem better now. Outside of your nitrate/bioload issue, it's one of mechanical filtration. I see you have AC110 and an XP3(?) on the tank? I had a similar problem in my 125 when my cichlids starting growing (when it was a cichlid tank still. I had an XP3 and an Eheim 2028 and it was full of floaties and I didn't like it. I added an AC500 (the old 110) and it cleared up the problem some. But it wasn't until my plants grew out and I added an FX5 instead of the XP3 that the problem went away.

Try adding some floss to the AC for a little bit (watch out as it will clog up fast) and if you get a chance, get an FX5 for the tank and add Purigen. I think you'll be happy with the results. And the good part about the FX5 is that you can move it with Kaleeko when you get the bigger tank set up.

Cool thanks for the advice Gary. We'll definitely try that.
We added a powerhead.. don't know if it will help at all though.
It is clearing up slowly, it looks a lot better then yesterday!
