that happens to non fired clay. usually the best way to add clay is before the tank i set up. Otherwise when you put clay in the substrate after the tank is filled, clay will start to absorb water and cause silt dust while you try to places under the substrate.
water changes alleviate cloudy water issues due to clay dust.
If you are having problems with the pottery clay, Buy a bunch or red clay planters for indoor and outdoor plants ( the dollar store sells little ones) its the exact same clay that been fired and cooked into pots. Crush it and put in bottom layer of dirt, I also add some dolimite and some potash for extra nutrients!
look into the last 2 ingredients before adding them though!
