Moss ball and cloudy water?

Will a moss ball make the water cloudy? I bought a moss ball for Fishie's tank (5 gal.) and one for Shiny's tank (2.5 gal.), and the water in Shiny's tank has been a bit cloudy even after I did a 50% water change. The moss ball is my only guess of what's making it cloudy. Fishie's tank isn't cloudy at all, but that could be because it's filtered. Should I have rinsed the moss ball before I put it in? Could something else be making the water cloudy?
Thanks!

ive never heard of moss balls causing cloudy water but yes you should have rinsed it in tap water before you put it in. you can do another large water change and take it out and rinse it well. squeezing it as your rinsing.

after you do that maybe put it in a glass jar over night to see if it will still cloud the water.
