Maybe the plants you just added had algae spores that are contaminating your tank.

Also, the TYPE of light you have can be more conducive to algae growth.

Since you have many fish, you might also want to check that your filter is clean. Just the other day, I cleaned mine because of a cloudy situation with a green tint. I made sure to clean the carbon bag that was in there, too, because media bags can collect alot of junk, including algae. Lo and behold my cloudiness went away.
