Cloudy water often comes from an algae bloom, fine particles of stirred up sand, or micro-bubbles. If I had to guess I would lean toward an algae bloom as the first place to consider.

You dosing anything? Algae wouldn’t tend to clear when the lights are on, quite the opposite, same with any photosynthetic bacteria. Are your circulation pumps off at night?
