Probably is. I've had big pieces discolor the water for many 
months( 6+) before things cleared up.

Water changes, and more water changes. I don't know if charcoal 
will help that much (I don't use it), but water changes will.

Crypts don't like change. They'll melt down, but most times they 
spring back, until you mess with your parameters again. I loose a 
leaf or two everytime I change over 25% or if I go in and have a big 
trim fest. I like change, they don't...
