Live, frozen or freeze dried?
Live can give you a bacterial bloom, freeze dried & frozen shouldn't be clouding your water.

with the dried and frozen, if you put too much in and don't take the leftovers out, then yeah, it can definitly cause cloudy water.

i'm thinking its my driftwood causing the cloudiness.
My bristlenose and cories like to eat it and break bits off..I can see tiny bits of brown floating around (including a yellow water)

oh, ok. If the water is a little yellow, the driftwood is probably new. As long as you are not medicating the tank, put some activated carbone in there...should take the yellow tint right out of there.

Did you soak/boil the driftwood prior to putting it in your tank?

yepp.
I boiled it for 48 hours !!!!!
8O

but its a pretty big "thick" piece.

and despite most of the tannins having already leached....
my bristlenose constantly nips, picks and breaks the top layer of the wood.
So I have tiny wood particles floating in the tank.
