That is a lot of... um fish personality for one tank. Crazy high bio loads a safe bet. Maybe massive water changes would help get the particles out.

The cloudy tank photo looks like a bacterial bloom to me (bacteria are normally too small to filter out, you just need to wait until the rank reaches equilibrium).
How was ?(and how long was) the tank cycled before adding all those fish (were seasoned filters used to properly cycle)?.

Aquarium filters depend on many factors so there is no one best filter for every aquarium. This also depends on what kind of aquatic life you are rising. Here I will explain some facts.
Betta fishes who likely lived in current less water prefer gentle flow from spong filter. As per my experience, this filter need least maintenance cost however they require air pump to work. This makes bit noise depending on build quality. This filter offer biological and mechanical filtration. So keep in mind don't wash them in tap water they need to squeeze every now and again.

Aquarium channel is similarly as significant as the fish tank for having an aquarium at home. We can't skip both of them as long as we need to keep fish alive. Many individuals began their first fish tank without even have a channel. It is no big surprise why most amazing the initial half a month.

Just to be direct, fish will kick the bucket if there is no channel in the fish tank.
To comprehend the significance of aquarium channels, we initially should realize what they do.

Before we get into the essential kinds of aquarium filtration for a sound tank, you have to comprehend the three classifications of filtration: mechanical, concoction and organic.

Essential Sorts of Aquarium Filtration for a Sound Tank

Mechanical: Mechanical filtration is the procedure wherein particulate issue is expelled from the water.

Concoction: Substance filtration expels poisonous or undesirable synthetics as the water goes through a compound media or gum.

Organic: In natural filtration, various sorts of microbes convert the harmful synthetic results created by the aquarium occupants into less poisonous supplements. This breakdown procedure by the microorganisms is known as the Nitrogen Cycle.
