It's probably just tannins from the aquasoil. New driftwood will do that too. It's totally harmless and is natural for fish like tetras, but you can remove it with purigen or carbon if you don't like the look of it.

Nothing wrong with leaving it, if you don't mind the look. It's actually very calming for tetras and bettas...

did you just recently stir up the aquasoil or something? if it's been in there a year without tannins leaching out, then i would assume that you stirred it up. regardless, it's not harming anything. as lego and dj said, purigen will get rid of it.
