My discus breeding tank has gotten blurry? Please help

I have had me breeding tank for some months and after doing a water change and cleaning the wood the water has turned very cloudy.
I think it could be the tank a in the water but I donít really know.
If you have any ideas of what could have happened please reply!!
I have added two photos below they both have the same water but one is cloudy could you please tell me why?

Rainwater collected from a rooftop can contain all kinds of pollutants and even heavy metals. Just a heads up. If it is collected in containers, I would always use a water conditioner which can control heavy metals, like Prime.

The rainwater might be the cause of the cloudy tank, bacteria or organics if from a dirty tarp or roof from sitting around over a long period.

Tannins? Wood will release them and turn the water a light brownish.
