Driftwood

1058 3
Okay so I wasn't quite sure where to post this thread.
I have two pieces of driftwood in my tank that will just not stop releasing tannins. I bought them in February and boiled them for about 8-9 hours and soaked them for 2 days afterwards and still my tank looks like black-water. It just keeps coming and obviously gets better every water change but then straight back to where it was the following morning. So, I guess my question would be what can I do to clear it up short of taking them out? I have carbon in the HOB but I could add a large pouch of it but after a few days it should wear off and leave me back at point A right?
:confused:

I'd like to mention that I don't mind the tinted water but I would prefer it to be less severe. I love the pieces I have too.
