Cloudy water after driftwood addition.

I just bought a rather larger piece of driftwood for my 36 gallon. The store said I can just take it home and drop it in the tank. I rinsed it before hand anyway cuz it was full of small snails. They had it in one of their tanks at the store so it's already soaked but the water seems a little cloudy. Should I do a water change or will the filter clear it up over night?

I would leave it overnight and see if it clears up on it's own.

If after a few days it does not then, I would look at ways to remedy the cloudy water.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

do you have a planted aquarium? if so then you might have got yourself a snail problem. i wouldn't worry about the cloudy water it does not harm the fish and will clear up on its own after a while
