tiny particles in the water

Hiya.
I'm hoping someone can help me figure out what's with my Schistura tank... I have changed the water fairly regularly - and more so recently, but it seems that there is a white algae (or fungus?) growing on the inside of the glass - very fine filamentous spots that are quite small. To make matters worse, there seem to be incredibly fine particles in suspension in the water, and it doesn't seem to want to clear. I am concerned that these issues are related, and worried for my Schistura, who seems to be more agitated recently, swimming a lot more when the lights are on.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks,
markinvan.
