100 % water changes are not ideal for the fish, a lot of the bacteria will be removed as well. You can still change the substrate without removing all of the water it just takes a bit of time. Do you use a gravel vacuum on a regular basis as it could be dirty underneath.

Try vacuuming out your substrate, sometimes waste remains trapped in the substrate and when it is disturbed it is shot into the water making the water cloudy and stinky.
