Orange water?

Having an issue with orange water....

I have 5 smaller sized tropical fish in my 10 gallon tank, they all get along well and don't seem to be stressed about the water but its orange.. I have been keeping up with maintaining the tank for the past 2 weeks, before that it was a tank for my female bettas. I did move recently so maybe its the water in the area that is bad? I also have it by a window and the food I use is supposed to be a non water color changing brand of flakes.... Any ideas?
Never had this issue before.

Unfortunately, there is no tint to the water. All of my other tanks are fine which concerns me. Its only that one tank. I have another 10 gallon and a 20 gallon as well as a 3 gallon and a 1 gallon bowl and none of those are tinted orange. I beginning to think that the lighting from being by the window has something to do with it. Oddly enough, it doesn't show up on pictures either..

Thanks for your help!
