Hazy Water

So, last time I overfed and my tank got cloudy, but that was a BB bloom that cleared up.

Now my tank is kind of hazy for no reason. I haven't changed the filter media and have been careful not to overfeed. All water params are in line. Everybody in the tank seems perfectly happy... it's just hazy.

Any idea how to clear it up without doing a 100% change and destroying my nitrogen cycle?

You can instead do two 50%'s to help clear it up. You can go as far as 95% water change and still keep your cycle going. The bacteria will survive a few hours without the water running through the filter as long as the filter doesn't completely drain out. Or you can do a series of small water changes to make up a 100%, like 50/50 or 25/25/25/25%.
