Most likely the driftwood, I had drift wood and after several months it was 
still leaching color into the tank water. I t did not harm the fish or 
plants. Frequent water changes will eliminate most of it and eventually it 
should stop.
These natural wood substances should actually be beneficial, why do people go 
out and buy blackwater tonic etc.
I personally prefer to have a slightly brown or peat tinge to the water it 
seems to look more natural, except for the color the water was crystal clear.
